Most secondary schools will have open days or evenings and it is important that you visit them along with your child. Take a look at our guide to open days, what you should be looking for and questions to ask.
My Family Comprehension Year 1
In year 1 children are taught to develop pleasure in reading, this will come more naturally to them if they fully understand the text they are reading. My Family is a worksheet that will encourage your child to say what they see as well as answer questions about the text they have read, or is read to them.
Year 3 Comprehension

This comprehension worksheet will get children thinking; showing they can recall a sequence of events, understand feelings characters from the text have as well as giving thoughts on a situation and discussing why they have that opinion.
Foundation Stage - Phonics Sounds for Reception
By this point in the school year all Reception age children will be settled in and phonics lessons will usually take place a few times a week. Phonics is a system delivered in order to teach children to read. It is taught in phases and the first letter sounds that your child will learn are often a mix of vowels and consonants, which later on can be arranged into a variety of first words.
Counting 1 to 5 to 10
Starting school will be a big change for many children who may not be used to a classroom environment. Most of the learning in Reception year is done through play, by turning learning in to games it not only keeps children’s attention, but they also won’t feel like learning is a chore. This worksheet on counting from 1-10 is a game for helping your child to learn number sequences from 1-5 and 1-10.
Place Value Hundreds Tens & Units
Children will have already been introduced to Place Value by the beginning of key stage 2. By year 3 children should be able to know the place value of digits in three digit numbers. This place value worksheet will give children a visual understanding of the number system.
Key Stage 1 - Partitioning Addition
Key stage 1 children will learn how to work out maths problems using partitioning. This involves breaking down large numbers in to smaller units so that they find them easier to work with. This is how they start to learn to work sums out in their head. This worksheet shows how addition is done using this method, along with questions and answers.
