Big Write


Pupils will be given words to learn weekly in school. These words will be based on familiar word patterns as well as the high frequency words all pupils need to learn before leaving primary school. Pupils who can spell these words will be given more difficult and challenging words which will help to stretch their vocabulary.

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.


The children will continue with the BIG MATHS programme this year. The weekly CLIC tests will continue in each year group and the children will benefit greatly if you support them by practising for these at home. This programme will mainly be supported with resources from the ABACUS maths scheme.
