At Montbelle, every child is encouraged, and expected, to read each evening. Even as children grow more confident and independent in their reading, we ask that this reading happens with an adult. Children will bring home an age appriopriate text in their book bag to share at home. All children have a reading journal, which records their reading in school and at home.
All children have access to Mathletics, an online learning platform. Children are encouraged to use this to support their Maths learning; achievements are celebrated in our weekly Celebration Assembly. Children will also be set weekly Maths homework, linking to the current class focus, mental maths, multiplication tables or calculation skills by their class teacher.
In our Foundation Stage classes, parents are provided with ‘Learning Together’ information; this helps parents know what their child has been focusing on in school and provides ideas about what families can do together to support their child’s learning.
Each term, a family project is set by the school to encourage families to work together. Families are encouraged to present their finished project in a way which best suits their project. Children bring in their projects to share with their class teachers and friends; all children who participate are awarded a certificate.
Our current family learning project is ‘London’; further information can be found by clicking on the link below.
