Teachers follow the national curriculum for maths. We emphasise the importance of developing good mental maths skills alongside ensuring our maths curriculum is broad and enables children to apply skills through problem solving activities. Children from Reception onwards have a daily maths lesson.
Children have a daily Literacy lesson which addresses children's development in speaking and listening, reading and writing. From Reception onwards, we teach systematic synthetic phonics using the RWI programme. We have a whole school scheme of work which sets out different genres of writing and in which year groups they are taught.
National Curriculum coverage
Each Year Group Overview document shows the overall coverage of each National Curriculum subject in each year group from Year 1 to year 6. Teachers then plan discrete, progressive sequences of lessons for each subject but with a focus on making cross-curricular links between subjects. These links provide an immersive learning experience which maximises the opportunity for learners to explore their knowledge and skills through their time at Meanwood.
