  • Try to set time aside to support your child’s homework activities and remind your child to complete and hand in their homework on time
  • Encourage your child to discuss homework with you, including any feedback from teachers
  • Make use of your local library and museums
  • For children in reception; photograph your child’s achievements and share them with us on J2e

Reading

Here at Biggin Hill Primary we are keen to develop your children's reading skills, so that they become an enthusiastic and independent reader. Reading develops much more effectively when there is a clear partnership between home and school. Reading opens a world of imagination and learning for your child and you can play a vital role in their learning journey. In order to do this, we need your help.

All pupils have a Read and Respond book which they are encouraged to take home with their reading book each evening. Reading homework, throughout the school, is to read for 20 minutes to someone at home. When your child has read you can sign their book and put a comment about their reading. We have found that children who are good readers do really well in all curriculum areas and it gives them a head start in their KS1 and KS2 SATs. It would be wonderful if you could hear your child as often as you can, after all practise makes perfect.
