Language is fundamental to learning and is the foundation of the whole curriculum. Every aspect of the children’s work is influenced by the extent to which they use language with imagination and accuracy. Competence in speaking and listening, reading and writing, is encouraged throughout the curriculum in order to enable the children to communicate appropriately and effectively.
The English Curriculum Progression Grid will help you see what needs to be covered by all children and how skills and English is developed as the children progress through the school.
Children learn to develop their skills in number and the principles of shape, space and measurement and of handling data in a variety of situations.
There is a strong emphasis on developing mental mathematical skills and its practical application. There are also strong links between mathematics and all other curriculum areas as well as ICT. We believe that children should be given the opportunity to reach their full potential and therefore provide accelerated groups for high ability children in each year group. We also ensure all children are given extra support to help them gain confidence in the subject when necessary.
