Supporting Your Child At Home
At Holly Lodge we aim to work in partnership with parents to support children’s learning. Should you ever have any concerns about how your child is progressing or feel you need some ideas for helping help your child with their learning, please talk to your child’s class teacher.
We hope that you find the following useful to help you support your child’s learning.
Our Curriculum Pages give you the latest information about what the children are learning at school. Visit the Class Pages to view specific topics and news for your child's year group.
There is additional help for topic type work in our Holly Lodge Resources Pages.
