Literacy and Numeracy
In Literacy, we write in a range of genres from shape poetry to adventure stories, instructions to newspaper reports. Handwriting is practised so that children will be able to write in a joined up cursive style before the end of the year. We have daily spelling sessions linked to the online resource Spelling Shed.
In Maths, formal and informal methods of calculating are taught together with time, shape, measuring and data.
We support the children with manipulatives as they move from the concrete form to the abstract.
