Helping Your Child


Here at St. Nicholas we believe that it is essential that parents and teachers work together co-operatively to enable the children in our care to achieve their full potential. 


At home it is essential that children read regularly with their parents/carers and we have provided Key Stage specific questions for you to use when reading with your child. 

Regular practise of spellings, multiplication tables and number bonds is also extremely beneficial. If you require any additional resources to support your child's spelling at home e.g  key words, tricky words or extra information about how the spellings/phonics scheme works at school please don't hesitate to ask your child's teacher. 

We also have available copies of the school calculation policy to assist you in supporting your child with their maths homework using the calculation strategies that are taught in school.
