Curriculum Overview 2022/2023
The school is currently reviewing its approach to spelling, but will still make use of Spelling Frame for you to support your child's learning at home. Whilst progress on spelling frame will be reviewed weekly, there will not be a formal 'spelling test' since the data show that this has a negligible impact on word retention. Instead your child's mastery of a word rule will be assessed in their writing which, after all, is why we learn our spellings.
When the children log onto Spelling Frame, they will select the rule that has been set for that week. Then, they can play various games to practise the rules as well as trying a mock test or even the real one.
Children should read for at least 20 minutes of their reading book each evening and they should complete the Accelerated Reader Quiz when they have finished. The library is open for children to change their books before school and during lesson transitions (just before break for example).
Children should use the TTRockstars programme to practise their times tables regularly. Even after scoring highly in the Year 4 Times Tables check, children need regular practise to move knowledge into their long-term memory.
The minimum knowledge that children need to know for each topic have been put together onto one knowledge organiser. Click here to be taken to the different Knowledge Organisers for our topics.
Our PE days are Monday and Thursday.
Please remember that earrings are not allowed to be worn during PE lessons and tape coverings are not allowed. If your child has difficulty putting their earrings back in, then they are best left at home.
WLPS PE tracksuit is available to buy from Penn Sports.
