Curriculum Maps are provided half-termly and can be found for each year group by clicking here.
Times Tables and Spellings focus for each week is provided half-termly for parents and a copy can be found on the individual class pages.
Curriculum maps are created half-termly by class teachers to show the learning that will be taking place in the classroom. It outlines the focus skills and knowledge that will be focused upon in each subject across the curriculum. This allows parents and carers to talk to their children specifically about the learning that they have been doing at school.
We are working on a set of resources for every subject, for every year group, that will outline the key skills, knowledge and vocabulary that children should gain during each academic year. We hope that these will be useful in supporting parents and giving them an understanding of how their child's learning is progressing in all areas as they move through our school.
For Autumn 2021, we are trialling a different approach to homework to target some key points of development that were identified during the summer term:
- Spelling and development of vocabulary;
- Knowledge of times tables (including division facts);
- Regular reading and promotion of reading for pleasure (particularly in Upper Key Stage 2).
Children in Year 1 – Year 6 are set the following tasks weekly:
- Spellings using ‘Spell Shed’ – these will be set on a Friday and will be available until the following Friday when children will be tested in class.
- Times Tables Fact using ‘Maths Shed’ – these will be set on a Friday and will be available until the following Friday where there will be an assessment in class using ‘Big Maths’.
- Key Stage 1 and Year 3 will be given ‘Reading Records’ and should be reading daily with a comment being placed in the reading record. There will continue to be keywords in the back of the Reading Record for the children to learn too.
- Year 4 – Year 6 will be set a ‘Reading Journal’ task each Monday which they will bring into school on the following Monday to share with their class and their teacher. There will be further information about the ‘Reading Journals’ in the ‘Meet the Teacher’ meeting next week.
- Year 6 will also be set some additonal homework tasks to support transition to and preparation for secondary school. These additional tasks are set from the Spring term.
Spell Shed and Maths Shed can both be accessed via 'Ed Shed' which can be found by following this link: Edshed.
There are optional additional maths challenges on the individual class pages.
