Each year we host a curriculum evening for parents to find out more about what their children are learning in mathematics, writing and reading. We also share the expectations from the government as to what an ‘age appropriate’ learner looks like and share how we assess the children at our school.
We wish to give our thanks to the many parents who attended our rearranged 2017-18 curriculum evening. We appreciate that 1 hour to discuss reading, writing, SPaG and mathematics is truly a ‘whistle stop’ tour but nevertheless we once again had such positive feedback about the session. As in previous years, the vast majority of parents commented that they left with new ideas of how to support their children at home in the areas of reading, writing, SPaG and maths with many commenting that they were committed to trying some of the ideas suggested with their child at home.
Please do explore all of the attachments below to find everything that was referenced during the evening. We will, of course, continue to take your feedback on board to improve the content of the workshops we deliver for the next academic year. One suggestion given was to have seen examples of the way in which the various methods in mathematics are taught at school – you can find short videos explaining each on if you explore the ‘maths’ tab further. Another comment was for further information about grammatical terminology used – once again you can find a document to help with this under the ‘spellings and grammar’ tab.
If there is any further guidance you feel we can give you about your child’s learning, please do not hesitate to contact their class teacher in the first instance.
