R.E.

In R.E. we follow the 'Come & See' program which is also followed by other Catholic schools in our diocese.

The 'Come & See' program allows the children to explore the life and teachings of Jesus through Bible stories, discussion, prayer and personal reflection and meditation. As with the rest of our curriculum, we ensure that the delivery of R.E. is through hands-on, play based learning and is presented in a style and manner that is meaningful to the children.

 

Phonics

 

We follow the Ruth Miskin 'ReadWriteInc' phonics scheme in Foundation Stage. Now that we have learned all our initial sounds, many of us have moved on to reading 'ditties' and writing simple sentences. Some of us are continuing to practise our blending to read and write simple words. Help us at home with the 'words for blending', the 'alien words' and the reading books we bring home. 

 

Visit the Ruth Miskin website where you will find lots of useful parent resources that you could use at home. Please click on the link below to access the website.

 

  • We use Rising Stars Mathematics in order to encourage mathematical awareness and understanding through enjoyable, game based learning. 
  • We aim to give children a secure foundation in mathematics and ensure they're prepared for Year 1 with a selection of creative, free-flow, and adult-led activities and games. We focus on concrete or 'doing' maths before moving to representational and abstract mathematics. 

Weekly Newsletter

 

Each Friday you will receive a class newsletter letting you know what we have been doing that week, what we plan to do the following week and also any other important dates or information.
