At St. Helen’s we are committed to developing the whole child through a broad and balanced curriculum. We ensure that we cover all areas of the National Curriculum.
Supporting Learning at Home
We recognise the extremely important role that parents play in their child’s education. We want to work in partnership to help parents develop their skills supporting their child’s learning at home. If parents would like any support with developing home learning please see Miss Reynolds, Miss Stack and Mrs Bajade
Every week we change the children’s home reading books, as well as sending home spellings and homework for the children to learn and complete.
Homework is provided to your child every week. This homework links to work that they have been doing in class.
Children have access to GSuite accounts; and as we move with the times homework in KS2 will be more increasingly set through this electronic platform. Please therefore refer to the GSuite Parent Guide to increase your confidence with how to use it when engaging with home learning. Please click here for the guide.
