At Linaker we use the scheme Maths No Problem. Each lesson begins with an 'In Focus Task' which the children try to answer independently, followed by 'Let's Learn' which is teacher led. 'Guided Practice' follows, which shows the children methods and strategies to answer questions. The children try to answer some of these questions independently. Finally the children complete questions from the book independently where they can but are also supported by the Teacher.
This half term focusses on Place Value. We will be looking at numbers to 10, number bonds to 10, addition within 10 and subtraction within 10.
There are lots of websites you can access with games to help your child with their learning, which can be found below.
At Linaker our English lessons are based around the 'Talk for Writing' program, which is a unique process that uses spoken activities to develop writing skills and has the potential to dramatically improve students writing. There are 3 parts to this;
Imitation- where the pupils learn and internalise texts.
innovation- where the pupils use these ideas to create new versions of the story.
invention- where the pupils create new versions with support from the teacher.
These tasks aim to improve the children's writing ability by giving them a structure and understanding of written language.
This half term we will be using the text The Colour Monster.
