During the school year your child will be working on a programme which will include all of the following elements:
English Mathematics Science Information & Control Technology
Art and Design Geography History Religious Education
Physical Education Design Technology Music Personal, Social & Health Education
The National Curriculum document defines the material that has to be covered in all subjects and copies of this, our policies and schemes of work can be seen in school if you wish.
There is a variety of teaching methods used – sometimes the children will be working individually, sometimes in groups and sometimes as a class. Care is taken to adjust the work to cater for the more able children and to be aware of children who may have special educational needs.
We ensure that the lessons are of interest to the children, on a two year cycle in Classes Two and Three and annually in Class One. This makes lessons more meaningful and encourages breadth and quality in children’s work. There will be a cross-curricular approach to most subjects but it will be necessary for some aspects of the curriculum to be dealt with separately. There will also be on-going activities in Numeracy, (number bonds, multiplication tables and mental arithmetic), and Literacy, (speaking, listening, reading and writing, spelling and handwriting).
