Literacy

In Literacy, we work on a variety of different writing genres, including descriptions, newspaper reports, short stories, letters and explanation/factual texts. Throughout the year, we work on a variety of reading skills, including referring to the text and using inference and deduction to ‘read between the lines’.

All pupils from Year 1 up will take part in daily guided reading sessions which are designed to develop all pupils reading skills. Pupils will be grouped to ensure they are all reading a challenging text.

Maths

Pupils take part in daily Maths lessons, with work mostly coming from Abacus textbooks. However, other challenging resources are used as well in order to develop mathematical ability for all.

Pupils have their own login for Mathletics. This is a fantastic online resource containing activities based on all aspects of the Maths curriculum as well as ‘Live Mathletics’ where children can compete with others around the world on quick-fire questions. Please use it as much as possible!
