 Helping your child 

There are a variety of websites that can be helpful to assist your child with their learning. There are so many to list the best case is often simply to google what you’d like to find. The Welsh assembly have created a website where parents can gain access to a range of materials. This can be found at http://learning.wales.gov.uk/resources/

For example, the children have to complete Mathematical Reasoning tests at the end of the year. Here is the link to the support materials. (You’ll see how difficult they are and what they children in each year are expected to achieve.) http://learning.wales.gov.uk/resources/learningpacks/reasoning-in-the-classroom/?skip=1&lang=en

 We also use a range of devices in school to assist with learning. Some of the key apps we used that are linked to the ipads include pages, imovies and numbers. See the 'Helping your child' section for a list of apps.   

If you have any concerns or queries anytime throughout this term, please do not hesitate to make an appointment to come and discuss them with me.

 Many thanks,
