A little About Our Class

As children learn in different ways we aim to teach using different styles.

We encourage children to have a responsibility for their own learning with the introduction of ‘Investigative’ challenges. These are areas where the children can choose to complete a task independently.

We use the Abacus mathematics planning to ensure everything is covered and differentiated to each child’s individual needs.

We give children the opportunity to work independently, as well as in pairs and groups.

At the beginning of each new term the class is asked what they would like to learn about, based on our topic, giving the children a voice. This is then used when planning the week’s lessons.

Children have the opportunity for reading and completing reading tasks every day.

We aim to be a healthy class encouraging children to drink water and have fruit as snack as well as participating in the ‘Daily Mile’ on a daily basis.

In language we look at a new spelling pattern each week and complete work on this spelling to reinforce the learning.

We also have a ‘Helpwr Heddiw’ each day where pupils can practice their welsh.
