National Curriculum Guidance

KS1 Phonics 

At Woodcroft Primary School we use the “Letters and Sounds” scheme for Phonics which is a National Government recommendation. The link below will open the publication from the Government website.

Letters and Sounds Scheme

Reading at Home

Our school is strongly committed to improving literacy and knows the importance of reading for pleasure!

There is good evidence to suggest that young people who read for pleasure daily perform better in reading tests than those who never do.

We want to encourage all our children to enjoy reading and to read a wide range of good quality literature.

 

Swimming

Meeting National Curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety.

Before Year 6 attend swimming lessons in the Summer Term, the following applies:

  • 13 out of 27 pupils (48%) of our current Year 6 cohort can swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 meters.
  • 13 out of 27 pupils (48%) of our current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively (for example, front crawl, backstroke and breaststroke).
  • 0 out of 27 pupils (0%) of our current Year 6 cohort can perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.

This information will be updated later in the Summer Term once the year have completed their lessons.

Schools can chose to use the Primary PE and Sport Premium to provide additional swimming but this must be for activity over and above the National Curriculum requirements. AT Woodcroft Primary School we provide weekly sessions over a half term long period for all Key Stage 2 classes from our Primary PE and Sports Premium.

 

Curriculum Newsletters.

Each half term the children will bring home their curriculum Newsletters with their homework on the reverse. Please take time to read through this with your child to find out what they are learning about in class.

 

Home School Agreement

The Home School Agreement is sent home at the beginning of each Academic Year with each pupil to be signed by the parent or carer and child. This is then kept in the child’s school file. Each child that starts at Woodcroft will have a Home School Agreement as part of their starter pack to be completed and returned to the school office.

Please see the document below for the latest Home School Agreement.
