Curriculum Statement Autumn 2017
We have Guided Reading lessons three times each week and 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.
Spellings are taught within English lessons and are tested every Thursday. Spelling lists are issued on a half termly basis.
Maths is taught in sets meaning that children are widely differentiated for. Beat That times table tests are every Thursday and have a different focus each half term. At home telling the time, practical measure and times table practise are useful to support school learning.
Weekly Maths or English homework is given out every Thursday and expected to be brought back by the following Tuesday. Once a half term a two week topic based homework will be issued.
