Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 Curriculum
Since September 2014 we have been following the new National Curriculum. We will give you additional information about the curriculum at the beginning of each term. Each teacher produces a termly newsletter which outlines some of the themes and activities for the term ahead. Other letters and leaflets are produced which should help keep you informed.
Homework is an important part of school life. This can include many activities such as reading, mental maths, games, collecting things or carrying out research. Class teachers will keep parents informed about the homework requirements for their classes
Helping your child
Extensive research carried out by the National Literacy Trust has found that for all children, reading activity at home has significant influence on their reading achievement; that reading comprehension is related not only to provision of books in the home, but also to conversations between adults and children about books and articles they have read and also that parents' and carers' attitudes and support towards their children's learning influence performance on literacy tests. Reading with your child is a good investment of your time and we would really encourage parents to read every day with their child. Do talk to your class teacher about how we can support you in helping your child with reading.
