The class has a two year curriculum map so that topics will not be repeated during the time the pupils are in this class. As many cross-curricular links are made as possible and often the timetable may change depending on the topics.
The National Strategies for Mathematics and Literacy are followed, and the pupils are regularly assessed against the standards. Targets are then discussed with individual pupils.
Welcome back – please find our planning overviews for the Autumn 2020 term below
The pupils are encouraged to be independent in their learning and take pride in their work. Homework is set weekly and is mainly linked to Maths or Literacy learning objectives for that week. We expect the pupils to read each evening and to learn spellings and multiplication tables. Often homework may involve research, and support from parents is valued. Pupils who need extra help with their work are supported in the classroom whenever possible.
Even though we have not been able to compete against other schools at sporting events this term, the children have been busy competing in the local area Virtual games. See detailed report and photos below. Thank you to Miss Leftley for all the organising.
And so we reach the end of the school year! The strangest year I have encountered since I begun teaching over a decade ago. Who would have guessed that the we would have encountered a global pandemic!? This will be my final post before the summer holidays! Please see belowone last home learning menu. I appreciate that you may have finished up on Friday but I wanted to make sure that there was a few last things to keep you going if you wish to. The ‘Let’s All Create’ pack looks particularly exciting.
As always, I am available should you wish to contact me with any questions or queries. Equally if you would like to share learning outcomes with me, I love seeing how those of you at home are getting on. Email me at email@example.com.
I hope that you have had a lovely weekend and have made the most of the sunshine being back.
Please find attached the home learning menu and resources for this week’s home learning. Not long now until the end of term, I know that some of you have been working so hard and will be ready for a well earned break.
Reports went out at the end of the week to those children in school. Those of you at home, look out in the post for yours. If there is anything on the report that you would like to discuss further, don’t hesitate to call.
Let me know if you have any questions or queries about the work.
We all know it has been a very odd year and obviously it has affected school life greatly, none more so than in sports with several competitions being cancelled prior to school closing. However, we had managed to compete in several competitions in which we did very well and had had lots of fun. Our first attempt at gymnastics with a year 1 / 2 team proved fruitful, hockey too, along with football, rugby and cross country. The children’s commitment and willingness to learn new things made it very difficult for me to pick teams at times, producing some brilliant performances and enormous smiles. The netball team was in a good position in the league and we were all looking forward to those competitions along with many others we had entered. Unfortunately it was not to be which was disappointing but we did manage to get the Gold Award for sport based on the events we had taken part in, had entered for the whole year and what we had in place in school. I have to thank the School Sports Council of Oliver, Lilly, Clara, Caitlin, Henry and Elliot W, voted for by the class, who had to organise and run a lunchtime club, speed stacking, which turned out to be quite good fun! That was the difference between Gold and Silver.
Such fabulous news, Finlay achieved his Red Missing numbers multiples certificate in Tackling Tables last week. What a super achievement, well done Fin. If you see him around school, fire a question at him. ! We are so proud of you, this is a fabulous achievement for your year group.
