From time to time, the language that is used in classrooms can differ greatly from terms that we as parents learnt.
In this section, we will include details of where to find up-to-date information. We will link to PDFs and websites that will help you to understand the work that your child is being taught and the terminology used.
This page will be updated regularly so please bookmark it for future reference. We welcome suggestions from parents of other similar effective and successful parent resource tools.
