During the Summer term we are working as a team restoring Egyptian artefacts working for the Egyptian Government.  We will be finding out about life in Ancient Egypt.

Maths Curriculum

In Key Stage 2 we use the White Rose Hub Maths plans. We follow a concrete, pictorial and abstract approach to learning in maths.


Reading Curriculum

In Key Stage 2 children read a whole class text and develop their reading skills by discussing the text and working on retrieval, inference, deduction, viewpoint, vocabulary and author choice challenges. This year we have worked on "Stig of the dump'', ''George's marvellous medicine'' and we have just started ''Bill's new frock''

We read non fiction texts as part of our Mantle work and every week we take delivery of the First News newspaper. 

Some children need extra 1:1 reading practice and do this as part of our Reading Champions programme.

Spelling Practice

Spellodrome- In order to support the children to practice their spellings we are using the 'Spellodrome' website. The children have all practiced logging on with their individual passwords  in school and they should have brought these  home so can use it together.
