Each morning we will have an English and a Maths lesson. We teach spelling using ‘The Spelling Book’ and it follows a two week cycle. Week 1 will be a spelling investigation and then the children will have 15 spellings to learn. They will split them into phonemes and syllables and identify the tricky part of each word. Week 2 will be 5 short spelling sessions recapping previous learning.  Every two weeks the new spellings will be added to spelling shed and the children can practise these at home. 


The areas taught in Maths can be found in the Curriculum Overview as can all other foundation subjects. 


Guided Reading sessions involve reading and responding to a text and answering comprehension questions, under the guidance of the class teacher.


Homework will always be linked to the work we have completed in class and will be set via seesaw.


Class Routines


Each morning the class may have a milk and a piece of fruit.


PE days will change each term.

For Term 1, our PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays.


Homework will be given out each Friday. This is to be returned the following Tuesday.

The focus for homework will be a combination of Maths, English or Topic work.


Reading books and reading diaries need to be in school every day!

The children will change their books as and when needed- after they have quizzed using Accelerated Reader.
