KS2

 

MATHEMATICS

In Maths we follow the White Rose Hub scheme of work. It allows the children to be able to develop a mathematical fluency. Pupils are taught to apply arithmetic fluently to problems, understand and use measures, make estimates and check that their work makes sense.

The children work through the process of concrete, pictorial, abstract to understand mathematical processes. Pupils apply their practical skills into word problems to show their understanding of problem solving and reasoning. They are taught to apply their mathematics to problems, including breaking down more complex problems into a series of simpler steps. We learn our 3, 4 and 8 times tables and the related division facts.

 

ENGLISH

In English, we look at exposing the children to as many types of writing as possible. Being literate enables children to understand, how to express ideas and convey information effectively, in both spoken and written forms. We believe that literacy and communication are key life skills and it is, therefore, vital that children find learning to read and write a rewarding, enjoyable and successful experience. We give the children an opportunity to have a go at all of the different types of writing themselves. We also have many interactive hooks that allow the children’s imaginations to help fuel their writing experiences.

SPEAKING AND LISTENING

Pupils are taught to speak clearly and convey ideas confidently using Standard English. They learn to justify ideas with reasons; ask questions to check understanding; develop vocabulary and build knowledge; negotiate; evaluate and build on the ideas of others; and select the appropriate register for effective communication. We do this with a range of different activities, such as role play and performances such as class assemblies which allows the children to have an allocated time for them to speak. We also share our work as a class and have the opportunity to read what we have written aloud to the rest of the children.

READING

In Year Three children share a new class text each half term. These cover 6 different genres over the year including myths and legends and fantasy fiction as well as historical fiction. Pupils are given daily opportunities to read independently as well as to read with the whole class in Guided Reading sessions. They have access to Bug Club, an online interactive reading library which is accessible from home. Each class has access to the school library and children are encouraged to borrow books from the library. We have a cosy reading area in our classroom, with a selection of books covering a range of genres including fiction, non-fiction and poetry.

 

SCIENCE

Our aim is to ensure that all pupils:

· Develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of all areas of science.

· Develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them.

· Are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.

Scientific enquiry includes: observing over time; pattern seeking; identifying, classifying and grouping; comparative and fair testing (controlled investigations); and researching. Pupils seek answers to questions through collecting, analysing and presenting data. The topics that the children cover are Rocks and Soils, Animals including humans, Plants, Forces and Light and Shadows.

 

MODERN LANGUAGES

French

At Little Parndon, we believe it is important for our pupils to be exposed to modern foreign languages from an early age, they can continue that language into Secondary School and beyond, making our pupils global citizens and communicators. All children have the opportunity to learn French with Mrs Lee, our Specialist Teacher, following the Rigolo system. Lessons are once a week and last for 30 minutes. In Year Three Mrs Lee covers a wide variety of topics such as recognising buildings on maps, telling the time, food items, school subjects and sports.

 

ART AND DESIGN

We offer excellent provision in creative art and technical design. Our specialist teacher, Mrs Christmas, allows children to express their creativity and develop a range of artistic and design skills including sculpture, painting, textiles and sketching.

We also encourage pupils to criticise works of art and comment on their cultural and artistic significance.

 

PE

Little Parndon offers brilliant facilities and inspiring teaching for PE. Our team of specialist teachers and coaches deliver a wide range of lessons and after-school clubs for all children in Reception to year 6. The academy also provides the opportunity for gifted and talented pupils to represent Little Parndon in variety of tournaments and competitions.    

 

HOMEWORK POLICY

All pupils are encouraged to complete homework tasks, although these will vary in complexity, every day the children are given 3 spellings to learn which are tested daily. In addition to this, each half term the children are given a number of activities from their Community Values Passport as well as a long term homework project, linked to various parts of the curriculum. Homework also includes reading daily and practising maths skills such as their times tables. Please see our Homework Policy for more detailed guidance.

 

INCLUSION

At Little Parndon, we set high expectations for every pupil. We plan challenging work for pupils whose attainment is significantly above the expected standard. We carefully plan lessons for pupils who have low levels of prior attainment or come from disadvantaged backgrounds. We use a range of assessments to set targets which are deliberately ambitious.

All pupils are valued and are entitled to equality of educational opportunity. We take account of our duties under equal opportunities legislation that covers race, disability, sex, religion or belief, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, and gender reassignment.

We work with families and specialists to identify pupils who may have special educational needs, some of whom also have disabilities. Lessons are planned to ensure that there are no barriers to every pupil achieving. The SEN Code of Practice includes advice on approaches to identification of need and outlines what needs to be done for them.

With the right teaching that recognises their individual needs, many disabled pupils may have little need for additional resources beyond the aids which they use as part of their daily life. We plan lessons so that these pupils can study every national curriculum subject.

We take account of the needs of pupils whose first language is not English. Monitoring of progress takes account of the pupil’s age, length of time in this country, previous educational experience and ability in other languages.
