 *  Aspects of SMSC and the 'Prevent' agenda:

Please note that the curriculum planning documents (above) have been updated to show curriculum coverage of the 4 aspects of SMSC  provision in school (Social, Moral, Spiritual, Cultural), highlighted in different colours.  Please click here to see other aspects of school life that help to ensure this provision is broad and balanced.

 There are links to where suggested curriculum resources from http://www.preventforschools.org/ will be taught as part of this planning. 

 

Involving children in the democratic process:  Please click here to hear a radio broadcast (with grateful permission from BBC Radio Shropshire) of a local hustings event, just prior to the 2015 General Election.  8 of our pupils attended as part of their 'Rotary Club' award, and if you listen, you will hear our children asking questions about education to all of the parliamentary candidates.  Later that term, we held a mock election in school, which was great too.

For further sources of information on the curriculum in each class, please click on the 'Children' tab at the top of this website and choose your child's class.  For more detailed information, please talk to your child's class teacher, as each class has a wealth of curriculum information and planning for every subject, as well as detailed weekly plans. - far more than it is practical to upload to this site.

 

Please also refer to the termly curriculum information that every class sends out to every parent/carer early in each term.

 

 

Reading:

 

September 2016 Onwards:

School has invested in 'Accelerated Reader', a whole school, progressive reading scheme, for Key Stage 1 and 2.

 

Our reading stock has been catalogued, a new library created and additional reading resources have been ordered to match this scheme.

 

ACCELERATED READER INFORMATION

 

Key Stage 1 and 2 children will have started the 'Accelerated Reader' scheme in school this year, and you have all been sent out individual logins to keep you up to date with their progress in this.

 

However, so that you can find out more if you wish, please follow this link for a handy guide for parents:

My advice though...first, ask the children what they are doing...and if unsure, please ask your child's class teacher.

 

PLEASE NOTE: At the moment, AR-linked books for every child are NOT being sent home, since they are needed in school every single day and it would make it hard if your child lost or forgot his/her book on any given school day.   However, as we progress, this may change. Please ask your child/their teacher for what their current AR 'number' is, if you wish to use the AR website yourselves to support reaidng at home (details on the link)

 

Younger/Early Readers:

 

For early readers, a mix of Oxford Reading Tree, Collins and Pearson 'Phonics Bug' books, are used so that books given to younger readers are phonically decodable, matching their current levels of phonics/reading ability, to ensure clear progression for the children.    

 

 

Phonics:

 

From Nursery onwards,  we teach 'Letters and Sounds' phases, using a variety of resources.  We do not, howver, follow one specific published commercial scheme.

 

If you watch the video below you will see and hear how to pronounce the phonemes (units of sound) that we teach the children in school.
