At St Gregory’s we recognise the significant contribution that parents and families make to children's learning. We also value the partnership between home and school that ensures a positive learning journey for our children.
This year we would really like our children to practice their reading and develop a love of reading for pleasure. It can make a great difference when members of the family listen to a child read, share a story with their child and ask their child about the book they are reading. Please encourage your child to read every day.
Younger children on the Read, Write Inc programme will bring home a book that will help them to practice their sounds and the story they are learning that week. In addition to this, children have the opportunity to borrow a classroom book to share.
Spellings patterns will be learned and practiced in school as part of literacy lessons. On occasions, teachers may send home particular spelling patterns to learn.
Children will be asked to use 'Times Table Rockstar' from Y2 upwards. This is available online and as an app. Additional maths homework may also be set where the teacher wants the children to practice or consolidate their learning.
The school library and ICT suite will continue to remain open after school for parents and children to access resources.
Thank you for supporting your child at home with their learning.
