We follow God Matters in Religious Education (the Portsmouth Diocese scheme of learning). The children learn two and a half hours in KS2 each week. Our thematic topic learning (history, geography, art, design and technology) generally occurs in the afternoons.
Things that help us learn
We use Mathletics to support children’s home learning and we will be continuing to use Google Classroom as our online learning platform in Key Stage 2. Reading books are sent home on a weekly basis which are pitched at your child’s current phonic ability and at a level they can decode and comprehend at a 95% accuracy. Weekly personalised spellings are sent home to consolidate the understanding of spellings and spelling rules the children have been taught. Spellings for many children will be taken from Government issued statutory word lists.
