Help at Home

Help At Home


We are not a school that sends home lots of homework for children to complete. The children work very hard in school and when they get home there should be a balance between being a child and revisiting their skills.


So at home, instead of worksheets, we would love you to;


  • give your child the chance to read each day (10 minutes is fine)
  • read stories to your child (three short stories before bedtime goes down a treat)
  • cook with your child (preparing a meal, operating the microwave or weighing and measuring are great opportunities for learning mathematics)
  • buy bread and milk (or other basics) on the way home from school. Doing this in person at the shop using loose change is great 'real life' mathematics
  • have fun. Playing games, taking turns, watching TV together and dressing up are great ways to support your child
  • write shopping lists, keep diaries, write letters and invitations to inspire you child to write



Our Sticky Sheet Homework runs for all the children in Year 3 to Year 6. Children in Year 4 must know their multiplication tables by the end of Year 4, so they can expect weekly tests. We ask for some year groups to work on phonics on a weekly basis. We have also built a complete mathematics resource at which gives you practical ideas to help your child with their maths at home. 


However, with all work at home, it only works if you are part of it and children are enjoying it. Rigorous homework, in our professional opinion, will create more conflict and not support learning.

 Anson has been busy working with the London Grid for Learning building resources to support parents at home. Maths at Home has 200 videos to help you understand how we teach maths at the school. Grammar Explained has 80 videos explaining grammar terms for parents. 


You will need your child's LGfL USO (username and password) to access the resources.
