How to help your child
We encourage parental involvement in all aspects of school life. We currently run phonics sessions in Reception where you can come along and learn how your child learns to read. We also run parent workshops where you can come and have a one to one session with your child, and one of our Higher Level Teaching Assistants, in which you can see how your child is taught at school and learn how best to support them at home.
If you are unable to make any school sessions - take a look at some of our parental help documents below:
- How to help your child in Writing
- How to help your child in Numeracy
- How to help your child in Reading
- How to help your child in Spelling
- Literacy Jargon Busters for Parents
- Children's Comprehensive Health Guide (From Newborn to Pre-teen)
Parent Opportunities at Brooklands
- Books with Brunch Sessions (Nursery)
Parents of Nursery children are invited to join us on Friday's at either: the start of the morning or the start of afternoon sessions, to take part in out Books with Bunch Sessions
- Read with Reception
If your child is in Reception - you can come and read with us on a Monday morning, straight after drop off.
- Volunteer on School Trips
We always welcome parental help on trips - just keep an eye out for letters that will be coming home via your child's class teacher.
- Volunteer your cooking, art or design skills
We often need help with cooking, art and design sessions and many many other subjects in school, so if you have a particular interest in the topic your child is learning or a particular talent in that area, please let your child's class teacher know. We will then allocate a class and time to suit – we find that it usually works best if parents help in a class other than the class of their own child.
One very talented parent produced these upscaled drawing from Alice in Wonderland for Year One and Two's recent Mad Hatters Tea Party - they were gratefully received by the teachers and the children absolutely loved them!
- Volunteer to run an extra-curricular club
If you are also interested in running an extra-curricular club please let either the class teacher, headteacher or office staff know.
