KS1 Curriculum Map


We have been introduced to our new Numeracy scheme called Power Maths, this follows our current scheme called White Rose and is one of only two maths schemes supported by the DfE. We take baseline assessments early on in the term to help identify gaps in our learning and to provide the children with an aspirational target to achieve. Further details can be found here, including the curriculum overviews from Year 1 to 6.

We have also begun learning our times tables and children in Year 2 and 3 will have weekly times tables tests to improve and build on their current knowledge. We would encourage you to help your child by learning their times tables by playing songs and questioning them on a daily basis, this is a fundamental skill which will stand them in good stead as they grow at Great Ouse.
