Top tips for supporting your child with Home Learning
Parental support is essential. As a parent, you have tremendous power to strengthen
your child's confidence - and confidence is vital to learning. Help can be given in a
variety of ways:
• Provide specific praise that focuses on a particular aspect of their work. Comments such
as, "I like the way you have..." is more effective than "You're clever!"
• Read to, and with, your child as much as possible.
• Spend time speaking with and listening to your child – really listen!
• If your child is learning to read please use letter sounds when helping them to sound a word - the following page in our website is a helpful place for phonics support https://www.stbernadettesschool.com/phonics-and-reading/
• Encourage your child to observe and talk about the surroundings eg point out signs and notices
to young children and explain what they mean.
• Visit museums and places that you think your child might find interesting.
• If your child likes watching television, watch it with him/her sometimes and encourage your
child to talk about what s/he has seen.
• Try to set time aside to do Home Learning activities with your child. (Now turn off the television
or play station)
• Wherever possible, try to provide a reasonably quiet place for children to undertake the Home
• Encourage your child to discuss Home Learning with you and ensure that the work is brought
back into school on time.
• Be patient and give your child confidence through lots of praise and encouragement.
