Listen to Stories Online!

 

You can now listen to authors reading their own books via Youtube. How exciting! Simply click on the link below and follow the instructions on the web page. 

*UPDATE* 

 

You can now access the Big Maths website for yourself to be able to complete your CLIC and BEAT THAT tests.  Fantastic news!

The website will record your score and encourage you to beat your score every time you use it!

I've set them to the one you were using in school and I will also be able to see your scores and see how you're doing!

If you consistently get 10/10, I will change which one you complete to make it a little bit trickier 

There's also something called a SAFE test. We've not used these yet in school (we were due to start them this term!) and they test your outer numeracy knowledge.

Have a go at one and see how you get on  and don't worry if you find it tricky!

Our ‘Golden Rules’

At St. George’s we expect all children to be well behaved and ready to learn. Remember that each new term is a fresh start. Here is a reminder of our school rules so that you know what we expect from you.

  • Treat other people how you would like to be treated.

  • Keep your hands, feet and objects to yourself.

  • Always do as you are told straight away.

  • Play your part in keeping our school clean and tidy.

  • If you have nothing nice to say – say nothing at all.

  • Respect other people and their property.

  • Walk around school quietly, on the left and in single file.

 

 

Reading/Homework

 

Reading is very important throughout school however in order to develop a love of reading and progress your child's reading ability we ask all parents to read with their children at least 5 times a week. Please ask them questions about what they have read and sign your child's reading diary. 

 

Reading books will be changed on a Thursday each week.

 

Homework will go out on a Monday and must be returned by Friday. There will be a piece of Maths and an English/Topic piece to complete. 

Talk for Writing and Read Write Inc.

 

To teach the children reading and writing we will be following the Read Write Inc scheme. These are daily lessons that teach the children phonics, writing, reading and basic comprehension skills. The children will have a book they will focus on and all their learning will be based on the book they are reading. Your child may not be taught by their class teacher during these sessions. 

This is a photo of our Read Write Inc sound poster. This helps us when we read and write. 

 

We also teach separate Talk for Writing lessons. Talk for Writing is a writing scheme written and designed by Pie Corbett. The children are taught a specific text over 3 weeks. During this time the children learn a text and then adapt and change this text to create their own. The children really enjoy learning new texts and creating actions to help them remember. Ask your child at home to perform their text map to you. 

 

 

 

This half term we are learning and adapting 'The Three Little Pigs'.

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

Maths

 

Throughout school we follow the Big Maths programme. We do daily CLIC (Counting, Learn It's, It's Nothing New and Calculation) sessions where the children learn basic number skills. Within these lessons we are trying to develop counting skills, fluency and mastery within Maths. Mastery is focusing on deepening the children's knowledge and challenging them to apply their previously gained knowledge to new situations and problems. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

RE

 

In RE we follow the Come and See programme which has been recommended by the Bishop and written by various Catholic educators throughout our Diocese and across the country. This term's topics include: Special People. Throughout the year the children also have the opportunity to study different faiths and understand how different people live out their religion. 

 

Throughout their RE lessons the children are encouraged to ask questions and explore their understanding of the teachings within the Bible. The children hear different Bible stories and are provided with the time to 'wonder' and 'reflect' on the meanings of these stories and how God's word is relevant to us today. Ask your child about their learning in RE and ask them to think about any questions they may have relating to their current RE topic. 

 

 

 

 

 

Within class we have a Collective Worship table. Once a week the children take ownership of their own worship and work together as a team to lead the collective worship for the rest of their class.

The Great Fire of London;

Mapping of the World;

Science

Core Learning Skills

 

In school we teach the children Core Learning Skills. This subject looks at teaching skills such as independence, team work, speaking, listening, communication and working with others. It is a very fun and active lesson which the children really enjoy.

 

Throughout school and especially during Core Learning Skills we use our "DRAGON" values to motivate, inspire and progress the children. All children in school are familiar with these values and apply them to their everyday work and attitude.

 

 

PE

 

We have two PE lessons this year - Mondays and Tuesdays. 

We will be learning lots more skills.

Please make sure your child has their PE with them in school each week and that it is named! 

 

Music

 

This year, music lessons will be taught by a teacher from the Derby City Music Partnership.

We will be learning lots of new songs and techniques about music and song.
