Upper School Cognition and Learning Groups

Upper School Congition and Learning Groups

In upper school we now have groups that take place each morning (Monday- Thursday). In these groups, the children are taught Maths and English with peers of a similar ability. This has enabled us to really challenge all the children at their own individual level. We have already seen a rise in the progress the children have made since starting the groups in September and the children’s confidence with problem-solving is coming on leaps and bounds! The children also have opportunities to develop friendships with children from other classes in Key Stage 2.

Welcome back to our Roses page!
The final term! In English, we will become news reporters as we focus on school, local and national news. We will identify what an article, headline and picture is in a newspaper, and discover the different types of sources of news. We will then deliver a short video broadcasting some news from our very own classroom.
In maths, we are focusing on time, subtraction, multiplication and division, sorting and measurement. 
Please come back to see all of our news reporters!



Welcome back to the Poppies Page!

In English we are will be turning our attention towards questioning with a focus on interviews. Our group will interview familiar adults and score their answers, hopefully our staff can keep their jobs!

In Maths we will continue to develop our understanding of multiplication and division through arrays as well as applying the chunking method. We will also consolidate our understanding of previous areas such as time, statistics and measurement.

It’s a super busy term with transition and school events, make sure to come back and check out our pictures! 



In Libby's Sunflower group, we have been working extremely hard learning all about Fractions in Maths. Some of the children have moved onto looking at one sixths and beyond! Our semi-formal learners have enjoyed finding half or whole amounts of images of different animals. Our sensory learners have enjoyed using their senses, such as smell and touch, with a variety of objects and textures. They then communicated their preferences in a variety of ways. The hot chocolate powder was the top favourite smell!.
