In their art lessons, children will imagine, design and create art works. They will learn to use and manage the materials, instruments and skills of the art form to prepare, develop, produce and present art. Children will respond to art through their senses, thoughts and emotions. They will come to understand and appreciate works of art through critical study.

Reading for pleasure helps children broaden their vocabulary, develop their imagination, increase their general knowledge and is an important factor in future academic success. You can help instill a love of books by reading regularly with your child. • Make reading part of your family life. Have books around you so that your child is ready to read whenever there’s a chance. • Follow your child’s reading interests. It doesn’t matter whether it’s fiction, poetry, comics, non-fiction or magazines. It’s all worthwhile. • Encourage your child’s reading choices – maybe a familiar book for rereading as well as something new. If you are stuck for something to catch your child’s imagination ask their teacher or see our list of recommended reading. • Get comfortable! Find somewhere cosy and comfy to read with your child. • Ask questions to keep your child interested in the story. You might like to ask questions such as, ‘What has happened so far?’ ‘Is it what you expected to happen?’ ‘What might happen next?’ ‘How do you think the story might end?’ ‘What sort of character is….? Is he/she friendly/ mean/ nice…?’ • Read whenever you get the chance. Bring along a book or magazine for any time your child has to wait, such as at a doctor’s surgery. • Read again and again. Encourage your child to re-read their favourite books and poems. Re-reading helps to build up fluency and confidence. • Books and poems which include rhyme and repetition are great for encouraging your child or children to join in and remember the words. www.booktrust.org.uk has lots of recommendations of high quality books for children of all ages. Try the ‘bookfinder’ tool for inspiration on what to read next. Look online and in app stores for appropriate word and spelling games. Search ‘Oxford Owl advice for parents’ for ideas to help support your child’s learning outside school. Pen Pals, Dear Diary, Library, Word Games and Puzzles Head of English
