Mrs Entwistle and Mrs Jackson teach the junior children.
The day starts with prayers. The children then split into ability groups to complete either a session on: spellings, Personal Social and Health Education with relationships, grammar & punctuation, handwriting or French.
Maths lessons are next. We follow 'Maths Mastery' where every child can enjoy and succeed. Each child is given time and opportunities to fully explore mathematical concepts, challenging them through investigations using their ideas in new and complex ways.
After play they have Literacy.
In the afternoons children have topic work, when they learn all about: Art, Computing, Design Technology, Music, Physical Education, Religious Education, Science and Forest Activities.
Monday mornings are when we have dedicated time for Forest learning with Mrs Entwistle who is a qualified Level 3 Forest School Leader (other additional opportunities to learn in the forest are also planned into the weekly timetable). Forest school is an inspirational process, that offers ALL learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in a woodland environment. After each session the children fill in a floor book showing and explaining what they have learnt or done that afternoon.
Wednesday afternoons are dedicated to sports which is taught with the infant class teacher, alongside one of the highly skilled Pro Sport Coaching Ltd coaches.
Years 1 through to Year 5 swim during one of the terms within the year, for a block of 10 weeks, at Ribblesdale Swimming Pool, Clitheroe.
