Great morning at for the maths lesson study. An excellent insight into how maths mastery looks in the classroom, following a number of years of embedding the practice across the school.

English

At Whyteleafe School we aim to inspire creative and imaginative writing through a range of stimulus. Talk for Writing is at the heart of our English Curriculum, based upon the notion that talking through creative ideas before writing them is key to children understanding their own writing processes. 

Within each year group a range of text types are studied in order to ensure children are exposed to varying grammatical and language choices used by different authors for different purposes. Skills to develop spelling, punctuation and grammar are built into the curriculum, with children gaining an awareness of the different styles of writing for a variety of audiences. 

In EYFS and Key Stage 1 phonics is taught daily to enhance skills in reading. Across the school skills in reading are taught explicitly in order to ensure that children have good understanding of what they have read as well as being confident, fluent readers.
