Mount Nod Primary

Helping Your Child at Home

We strongly believe in the partnership between school and parents.

Working together helps children to learn and enables parents to feel confident in promoting learning at home.

To this end we have produced the following documents:

English

Reading Activities

Probably the easiest way to help your child is to read each day. Our leaflet will provide lots of activities to make reading an even more enjoyable and active experience for all.

Phonics and Spelling Guide

A short guide to explain what phonics is and how you can support confidently at home.

Speaking and Listening ideas

Try these fun games with your child at home to nurture their speaking and listening skills.

Maths

Read about how we teach maths at Mount Nod in our 'Maths Mastery' section of the website. Here you can find useful ways to help at home and see the calculation methods that we use with your child which should be mirrored at home where possible. Third Space Learning has also produced a helpful document which suggests ways you can support your child at home - click on the link below to find out more.

Our useful guide keeps parents up to date with what homework is expected of your child.

Additionally, we regularly hold Parental Workshops on a range of issues found to be important to parents in our parental questionnaires. Look out on our weekly newsletters for more information.
