Raising Pupils' Achievement
Happy Mother's Day
SIAMS Reports St. Peter's is a GOOD School
At St. Peter’s we believe that it is important for parents and carers to be actively involved in their child’s learning. Our 'Home School Agreement', revised in September 2016, captures much of the work and many of the changes that we have made to further develop the partnership between pupils, parents, staff and governors. Our mission statement:
“Hand in Hand we journey together, guided by God”
encapsulates this. A copy of the agreement can be downloaded at the bottom of this page.
Homework is just one of the tools that we use to support our parents and carers, encouraging their children to continue learning at home. Teachers plan activities which consolidate and reinforce skills and understanding from the classroom. You can find out more about our approach to homework by downloading the 'Supporting Your Child with Homework' leaflet also found at the bottom of the page.
At the beginning of each term, children are given a ‘Homework Menu’ from which they are able to choose activities to complete at home. This is sent out at the same time as a curriculum letter so that parents and carers are able to see the clear links between homework tasks and what is being covered in the class. The homework booklets for each class for this term can be found below.
The school also has subscriptions to MyMaths and Times Tables Rockstars to support home learning. These online resources provide our pupils with an alternative way to develop their mathematical competencies through the engaging range of activities, games and challenges. Links to these sites can be found by clicking on the image above. If you have not received the username and password, please ask your child’s class teacher. Please note that Times Tables Rockstars is only available to pupils in Key Stage 2 only.
In Reception and Year 1, pupils may be asked to practise particular sounds as part of their daily reading and phonics development. Our reading scheme books are organised to support our ‘Letters and Sounds’ based approach to the teaching of phonics. You can find our more about reading, phonics and spelling on separate pages on our website
