Each term we are working on whole school curricular targets for Literacy and Numeracy.
In Literacy the whole school target focuses on improving pupils’ abilities to interpret and understand a range of texts, including the ability to infer, deduce and evaluate ideas and themes presented in texts.
They progress from being asked to evaluate the usefulness of information and justifying views using evidence from the text, through identifying and interpreting the use of expressive, descriptive and figurative language in prose and poetry, critically comparing how different sources treat the same information, to using deduction and inference to explain how the atmosphere is created in a text and what prompted characters’ actions.

In Numeracy we are aiming to improve knowledge, understanding and application of position and properties of number. The targets are progressively more challenging for each year group and are grouped in three levels: those that all should achieve, those for most pupils in the year group and ones that only some will find possible. All levels have success criteria so that children will know whether they have achived the goals. Children have these displayed in their classrooms and parents can access these through following this link.
