Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, regrettably we are unable to invite parents into school for a tour of Berkswich CE primary and nursery. We understand that choosing the right setting for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make in your child’s learning journey. With this in mind, we hope to provide you with a range of opportunities to allow you to gain an insight into life as part of our special Berkswich community and the chance to ask questions. We certainly welcome the opportunity to support and reassure you as you organise your child’s first steps into Nursery and Reception. We are offering virtual meetings to provide an opportunity for new parents to meet our headteacher, EYFS leader and teaching staff. This will provide a great opportunity for you to ask questions and find out about our community and learning at Berkswich CE. Your child is a vital part of this process, and so we welcome them to join in with the meeting.

Home Learning



Homework will be issued on a Thursday to give the children a chance to ask the teacher on Friday if they are unsure about anything. Many children are involved in activities out of school and we hope that by allowing until Tuesday for homework to be returned, then the children can effectively organise their time around other commitments. Homework will usually be a writing, maths or topic based activity.



Children should read ten minutes daily. Children should have the opportunity to read to an adult.



Children should practise their spellings regularly. Try some of the helpful hints given in the spelling books to learn some of the tricky words. The children will be tested at least every two weeks - usually more often.


Times tables

Regular practise of times tables is essential. Please encourage your child to go on Times Table Rock Stars regularly.
