Supporting learning at home

Parent consultations take place in the Autumn and Spring term. They are an opportunity to view your child’s work and speak to the class teacher.

Supporting your child’s learning at home

Taking an active interest in the different aspects of your child’s learning is the most valuable way of supporting your child at school. Below are some ways to support you to engage with their learning.

Learning logs

We have given every pupil a learning log. It is filled with useful information to support learning both in school and at home. This includes prompts for writing, spelling lists, key skills progressions, maths reminders, times tables lists, grammar terminology and even a world map. Please ensure it is in school every day.

The second part of the log is where reading will be recorded – both at home and during guided reading. House points are awarded for regular reading at home. There is also a section for weekly spellings and tables. Please ensure it is signed weekly to show homework has been completed.

This year’s cover contains lots of different pieces of work from years 3-6 created during 2016-17 .

At Sawtry Junior Academy we use Seesaw as a safe platform for communicating with parents. Class teachers update the class page with information that can help with learning at home, as well as with pictures and updates about the learning that takes place in the classroom. It is also a really useful way of sending out handy reminders.

At the start of each Academic year, a Seesaw sign up sheet will be sent home for parents to sign up to their child’s account. The most immediate way to access Seesaw is via the Seesaw App, although there is also a website. The link below is helpful for further information. If you have not signed up this year, the academy office will be able to help you.
