Organisational information

Homework: Homework will be distributed week every Fridayand should be returned to school every Wednesday.

Reading: All children will read individually to an adult at least once per fortnight. The book that they have read, along with its page numbers, will be recorded in your child’s school diary on that day’s date. Your child will be given the opportunity to change their reading book daily, but should only do so once a book has been completed. We encourage children to read at home every day. Children must ensure that their reading book and school diary are in school every day.

English

 

At Ladybridge, we employ a book-led English curriculum. Books are used as a stimulus for capturing the imagination and interest of the children. Through this, National Curriculum objectives are delivered. We encourage child-led learning and, therefore, plan learning opportunities as needs arise and interests are discovered. Please see attached for the appropriate expectations of the new curriculum for your child. This includes a spelling list. 

 

Mathematics

 

You will receive a maths booklet which includes the expectations for each different area of maths that your child is expected to learn, and also includes the types of calculations and methods that will be taught. These booklets will be used in school to help us assess, track and set targets for your child. The maths booklets are based upon age-related expectations, so the majority of children will be expected to become secure in all areas by the end of the year.
