Curriculum

Curriculum
As a school we cover the learning intentions as set out in the National Curriculum 2014.  
 
Below is a pdf showing the full national curriculum coverage for years 3 and 4.
 
 
Schools decide for themselves what is taught when.
 
Here is a pdf showing the topic and learning intentions for the academic year 2020/2021 for Badger Class
Reading, and understanding what is read are the most important skills that a child can learn at primary school. 
Below is a pdf showing reading progression through the primary curriculum.
In Badger class we learn to write by using models and taking ideas that we like.  We experiment with the structure of our sentences and become authors, choosing the words or tecniques that help us to write clearly. Writing skills are generally accumulated and honed through reading; children write using what they have read.  This is why it is so important that children read quality texts regularly both at home and at school.  Below is a progression map for primary school writing.
National Testing
Children are expected to know all of their times tables to 12 x 12 by then end of year 4.  This is because times tables are the building blocks of most of primary mathematics.
 
Year 4 children will have an electronic times table test provided by the government towards the end of the summer term.
Maths
 
We broadly follow the White Rose maths scheme, although we always adapt it to our class' needs.
