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. 




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.
