Our timetable may change occasionally according to needs. We begin our day with an assembly or class worship. We then have guided reading followed by English and a 15 min break (including milk/water and fruit). We complete our mornings with Maths. Each afternoon always begins with a phonics session followed by a variety of subjects throughout the week: Physical Education (PE), Music, History/Geography, Science, Religious Education, Handwriting, Computing and Art.
Children read with a Teacher or Teacher assistant every fortnight; during this time your child will apply new phonics skills, make predictions, talk about characters and settings and make links to their own experiences. Children are then given the opportunity to choose their next book. Children also read daily in our guided reading sessions where we learn lots of reading strategies, how to decode words, retrieve information and make inferences about what we have read.

In maths children are continually reinforcing their knowledge of reading and writing numbers and place value. Children work hard on number bonds and investigating patterns in addition and subtraction sums. Children use and apply their mathematical knowledge to promote their ability to solve problems.

In English we explore books from a range of genres to develop our speaking and listening and reading and writing skills. We enjoy stories, poetry and non-fictions texts and use a range of talk for writing activities to help learn the text; including role play, drama, actions, story maps and games. We also work hard to improve our knowledge and use of different punctuation and grammar.

Things to Remember
Please make sure your child brings their reading book to school every day. Remember it is part of their school uniform.
We ask for a voluntary contribution of £1.00 which will be used to enhance the curriculum.
Spellings will be given out on Monday for a spelling test the following Monday.
PE – Our PE day is on Monday.
Parent’s assembly is held each Friday morning. This is a special assembly which celebrates children’s success and achievements that week. Teachers choose two children who have shown great enthusiasm and achievement in their work or attitude to learning. We also have class assembly on a Friday where classes take it in turns to present throughout the year what they have been learning about.
Your child can also visit the school library each week and can change their library book and bring it home to share. It is essential this book is looked after as a small charge will be asked for if the book is lost or damaged.
Each week we ask for a donation of £1.00 from parents which is used to enrich the children’s learning and provide extracurricular activities.
Thank you for your continued support.
