"The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”
Our key values underpin all we do at Seymour Park; we Respect, Care, and Grow.
Our children follow the nationally agreed curriculum with an emphasis on it being rich, broad, and balanced. Teachers plan lessons to ensure they are well-sequenced and build on prior learning. We want all our children to know more, remember more, and in turn be able to do more.
The children’s phonic knowledge is developed further in Year 2, following Little Wandle Letters and Sounds. Children receive daily phonics 'keep up' where necessary and early reading acquisition is further supported through small group Reading Practise sessions. As children become more confident readers they progress to whole class Guided Reading. We use high quality, challenging texts, putting a focus on vocabulary development, inference and comprehension skills.
Here is a link to the Little Wandle website which has more information and some useful videos.
Mathematics is taught using the White Rose mastery model, where children develop their understanding, fluency and reasoning skills.
