Our programme

Our programme

Our programme is based on one session of English and/or one session of maths per week with a maximum of 8 children per class. Additional sessions can be booked to recap or reinforce the focus for that week.

English

Year 2

Word Reading – phonic knowledge and skills, reading aloud and fluency

Reading comprehension – answering questions on given text, recall of information and making inferences.

Writing and composition – creative writing, planning what they are going to write about and encapsulating what they want to say, sentence by sentence.

Vocabulary, punctuation and grammar – expanded nouns, using punctuation correctly, sentences with different forms.

Year 3 and 4

Year 3 and 4 follow the same National Curriculum objectives, but will be taught differently to develop their skills.

Reading comprehension – understanding what they have read independently, drawing inferences and justifying with evidence, predictions and thinking how language, structure and presentation contribute to meaning.

Writing and composition – creative writing, composing sentences and organising paragraphs around a theme.

Vocabulary, punctuation and grammar – using a range of sentences, conjunctions, adverbs and prepositions, fronted adverbials.

Year 5 and 6

Year 5 and 6 follow the same National Curriculum objectives, but will be taught differently to develop their skills.

Reading comprehension – different genres of text, drawing inference and justifying with evidence, predicting and summarising, identifying how language, structure and presentation contribute to meaning.

Writing and composition – describe settings, characters and atmosphere, using dialogue, paragraphs, drafting and editing.

Vocabulary, punctuation and grammar – expanded noun phrases, relative clauses, recognising vocabulary and structures that are appropriate to formal speech and writing.
