We teach 6 units of work units of work which develop vocabulary, reading and writing skills through the mastery approach. The units, for use with pupils from EYFS to Y6, provide clear detailed lesson plans and resources, linked to high-quality texts to ensure engaging and purposeful English lessons. Effective teaching strategies to challenge greater depth writers are included within each unit of work.
Our new newspaper team is made up of sixteen Year 5 children who show a passion and interest in a wide array of topics. The children have shown great determination and dedication throughout this term to get this edition ready for print. The team have met every Friday lunch time and have requested that next term this increases to after school as well. Throughout the year our Newspaper will include Film reviews, Sport, Wellbeing, School events, History focus, Art focus and competitions.
