Introduced across the school in September 2016, a mastery model of Maths teaching is now being followed in all year groups. Work is taught in longer blocks with the aim that we do not just cover topics, but give children the chance to master them, applying the skills they have learnt in a range of contexts. The document below illustrates how these blocks are planned for each year group.
Please note: The order of the blocks is carefully planned so that skills are covered sequentially and built upon throughout the year. The block highlight the specific area of Maths being covered at that point within the year, however a much wider range of skills will be covered during that block.
From September 2017 the teaching of phonics follows the Letters and Sounds programme. Children are taught in classes.

We operate a colour banded reading book system. Whilst no one scheme is used in its entirety, books from the following reading schemes have been banded and incorporated into our reading book system: Oxford Reading Tree, Fireflies, Rigby Rockets.
