Reading - All pupils from will take part in daily guided reading sessions which are designed to develop all pupils reading skills. In groups pupils will read and discuss a range of texts appropriate to their level.
Writing - through the focus on our half termly novel, pupils will write using a range of genres with word and sentence level focus through to extended pieces of writing.
In Maths we cover a wide range of topics in line with the Curriculum for Wales. These include the four operations, Place Value, Shape and Space, Measures and Data Handling. Opportunities for problem solving and investigation work are provided across these topics. Lessons are differentiated to ensure all pupils are receiving work appropriate to their level of ability. Pupils answer a range of mental maths questions on a daily basis.
All homework at Evenlode is completed via Seesaw, an online learning journal. Students use creative tools to enter text, to take pictures, draw, record videos and more to capture learning in a portfolio. Children are issued with individual logins at the start of the year to be able to access their own journal and complete teacher created activities that are assigned on Fridays and submitted by Tuesday mornings. Seesaw is available from https://app.seesaw.me on a computer, or you can install the Seesaw Class App on an iOS or Android device.
