Letter from Mrs Penhale regarding a confirmed case of Coronavirus
Miss McKeown teaches Miss Kirkwood’s class on a Wednesday afternoon. Miss Dolan teaches Miss Matthews’ class on a Tuesday morning and a Wednesday afternoon. Mr Latty and Miss Illingworth also support us in the classroom.
Please feel free to catch the class teacher at the end of the day, or make an appointment with them. You can leave them a message either on Class Dojo or in your child’s home/school book.
We teach the National Curriculum 2014 objectives and have several cross-curricular themes throughout the year: The Ancient Romans, South America, Kenya and The Edwardians.

Maths Targets – these are based on Superhero Times Tables. Progression is as follows:

English Targets – Each child is given an individual writing target to work towards. They are encouraged to try and achieve that target every time they write and after demonstrating their ability to use the target four times independently, they can tick it off and are given a new target. Children are involved in deciding upon their targets.
