Curriculum Information

Welcome back to a new school year! All the children have settled remarkably well in their new classes and it has been fantastic to hear the children playing, working and having fun – just as it should be.

Our curriculum this term is focussed on 'Planet Earth' - you will find the curriculum overerview for this half term below. This is a whole school school document, so please only focus on your child/ren's year group. We will use familiar curriculum type sessions such as phonics, reading, writing and maths so that all children re-connect with the routines and expectations of school. There will be times for exploration, indoors and outdoors, so that the children can lead some of their own learning and be curious about the world around them.

Each week will have core sessions based around maths and English, which will usually be carried out in the morning sessions. Then, in the afternoons, each week will be focused on a specific foundation subject to enable the children to fully immerse themselves in what is being taught.

We believe that the way we have developed our curriculum fits well with our own ambition and motto where we want all children to be curious, be resilient and be compassionate

The full details of our Curriculum can be found on our website at http://www.capenhurstcep.cheshire.sch.uk/page/curriculum-information/7481 

Reading

It is really important that children are able to read regularly and continue to read books at school and home and is a key factor in our curriculum.

Our younger children need to apply their phonic skills to reading books to enable them to improve their reading. Furthermore, reading is essential for wider curriculum success. Developing a love of reading and supporting the habit of reading is key, both to lifelong learning and ultimately for children’s life outcomes.

  • All reading books to be kept in phonic phase baskets in KS1 and moving through to banded baskets in KS2
  • Reading books will be changed once a week
  • Older children should record their reads at home in their reading record. Staff will monitor the frequency of reads at home
  • Parents of all children should record comments, as appropriate, in their child's reading record
  • Children in all four classes will enjoy daily story time

Homework

Children across school have been allocated a Google Classrooms log in. Any new children arriving at school will be allocated one as soon as possible after their start date. 

Homework will be scheduled to be available on Google Classrooms every Tuesday at 8am and is to be completed by the following Monday. Staff will endeavour to mark the homework in a timely fashion prior to new homework arriving. Any homework arriving after the day it is due will not be marked.

P.E.

P.E. will take place on Mondays and Fridays. On these days, children are to arrive in school wearing their P.E. kit.

 

If you have any queries regarding the above, please do not hesitate to ask. We look forward to working closely with you again this term.
