“What have you been doing today Billy?”
“You must remember something you did in lessons?”
“Mr Pusey set fire to some metal, we sang a song in maths and Sid fell over in the mud it was awesome he even had it in his hair!”
We know they have been busy all day in lessons but getting it out of them can be a struggle. To keep you informed about what your son/daughter is doing we have devised these drop down menus so you can quickly see what they are being taught, in half termly intervals, by year group. They briefly outline topics, what is being covered and potential links to RRSA. We hope they will help you support your child at home. If they help you to understand why Mr Pusey is setting fire to metal then that’s great as well.
If you do want more information about a subject, including detailed plans and at times samples of students work, please go to the subject area or contact the relevant member of staff listed in the subjects below and they will get back to you as soon as possible.
Reporting to Parents Presentation

Last September a new National Curriculum was introduced to all schools, bringing in some significant changes to what pupils are taught and how they are assessed. For example, levels have gone. Your child will no longer be assessed as a level 2a or 5c etc. as they don’t exist. The curriculum for Maths and English is set out in year groups and pupils are aiming to ‘master’ the curriculum. The new curriculum is also harder than the last one. For example, many of the knowledge, skills and understanding in maths that would typically have been taught in Year 6 under the old curriculum are now expected to be taught and mastered in Year 4, or some even Year 3. There have also been changes to the format and reporting arrangements to the end of Key Stage 2 tests.
