We are a class of 31 children made up of people from all around the world. Between us we speak more than 10 different languages. We are extremely proud of our diversity and celebrate all of our differences. 

 

We begin our school day with a morning task and we watch newsround every day to keep up with what is going on in our world. Our days are full of exciting learning right across the curriculum. 

 

Our homework and spelling day is Thursday and we have PE every Friday.

English

We embed our English skills in to every aspect of the curriculum, every day.

 

Each day we also do Reading Mastery, Reading Plus and an English lesson where we focus on our writing, grammar and punctuation skills.

 

Reading Mastery is a format that we use over five days to explore one text in depth. The format is the same each week but we explore fiction, non-fiction and poetry in rotation. The children are involved in class discussions and work in partners to complete the tasks.

Monday: Understanding the text

Tuesday: Vocabulary

Wednesday: Retrieval

Thursday: Inference

Friday: Independent Task

 

Reading Plus is an online reading program which not only assesses children's efficiency and accuracy in reading, but also measures and increases motivation and comprehension. Students are given choice and control to practice at their own pace with a program that uses adaptive technology in a truly meaningful way. All children have their own log-in details and are encouraged to continue this at home.
