English Curriculum for all Year Groups

Supporting Reading using Accelerated Reader

We have been trialling the use of Accelerated Reader in school.  It is a reading package that allows children to read almost any book that is at the appropriate age level for them and then be tested on it to determine their level of understanding, engage them with their reading and allow teachers to track individuals progress.  There is detailed information available here.

If you would like to check that your children’s books at home can be used as part of this package then you can use the AR Bookfinder site.  There is a link to the site here.

We will be doing a full launch of Accelerated Reader in the new year where parents will be given full details of how they can support their children with it.  In the meantime, a guide for parents can be found here.

Mathematics Curriculum for all Year Groups

In September 2014, a new curriculum was introduced which involved many changes to the way Maths is taught and the expectations for each year group.

The ‘Mastery’ curriculum, ensures the children have a deep understanding of the subject, where they can make links between the different areas of Maths.

There are three aims of the Primary Mathematics Curriculum: fluency, reasoning and problem solving. In all lessons, where children are required to think mathematically, pupils are encouraged to apply their knowledge to a range of different activities and are given the opportunity to reason and problem solve. Much of the new curriculum focuses on the children being able to reason about Maths and solve problems independently. It is no longer enough to just get the answer correct; the children need to be able to prove why and explain how and why.

In lessons, children are encouraged to use apparatus initially to develop a secure understanding before moving onto using just numbers and solving problems.

The White Rose

As a school, we follow the White Rose scheme of work for our mathematics lessons.

The White Rose Maths Hub provides term by term overviews for the new National Curriculum with the aim of supporting primary schools by providing more detailed Schemes of Learning, which help teachers plan lessons on a day to day basis.

The maths curriculum is supported by the following calculation policy.
