Reading at home

It is important children share books with you at home. Both listening to your child read, and reading to your child are influential in developing reading skills.

If you listen to your child read please note it in the planner. We aim to change your child's reading book 1 or 2 times a week.

 

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me, you can email me on r.cook@cathedral.lancs.sch.uk, talk to me in the morning, or arrange a meeting after school.

 


Continuous Provision

Within the classroom there are four areas of continuous provision: writing, phonics, topic and mathematics. Outside the classroom, in the shared area, there are another four areas: creative, construction, roleplay and malleable.

Reception and Year 1 areas are planned together to ensure the continued development of key skills such as; letter and number formation, place value, independent writing and reading. Alongside this, the challenges embed learning across all area of the curriculum,

All the areas have a challenge set each week aimed at particular groups of children.

Using continuous provision allows teachers and teaching assistants to work with smaller groups of children, giving each child the opportunity for deeper understanding and greater progress within lessons. Having a large number of EAL children within the cohort, working together in smaller groups enables the children to become more active learners.
