Curriculum Statement Autumn 2019

Writing

Our writing gives the children an opportunity to practise and apply their grammar skills and is frequently linked to our History, Geography, RE, Science or a school project.

Reading

We have Guided Reading lessons three times each week where we focus on a skill using our class book or comprehension. We benefit from reading volunteers who read with children on an individual basis.  Home link books are sent between home and school to enable parents to record home reading.  It is expected that children read at home at least five times each week. The home learning books are checked weekly.

Spellings

Spellings are taught discretely, revised every day and are tested every Thursday. Spelling lists are issued on a half-termly basis and include common exception words and spelling patterns.

Maths

Maths is taught in Hubs meaning that children all learn the same Curriculum but at a different pace or with more adult support. We consolidate our 2,5 and 10 times tables whilst learning the 3s, 4s and 8s also.  At home, telling the time, using money, practical measure and times table practise are useful to support school learning.

Homework

Home Learning – Autumn 2

Home learning includes daily times tables and spelling practise using Times Tables Rock Stars and Spelling Shed or a preferred method and reading at least 5 times a week.
