Maths, English and Phonics
During the morning sessions, the children will be streamed according to their age/ ability.
Maths will be taught by Mrs Hogarth and English will be taught by Mrs Bradshaw. The phonics will also be streamed across the school so all children will access the correct phase for their ability.
Religious Education (RE)
The children are taught this subject in each key stage. Their tasks are differentiated across the different year groups. We use a scheme called The Way, The Truth and The Life, but we also supplement this scheme with other ideas.
Teachers plan and share prayer and liturgy with the children on a weekly basis. The children also have the opportunity to plan and lead a liturgy once a term with the support of staff.
Where possible we try and visit the church on a regular basis to share in the mass or just to have some time to sit, pray and reflect.
Autumn Term- Food, Glorious Food
During the Autumn term, the whole school topic is food, glorious food. This topic will be taught throughout many of the different subject areas.
- Instructions - analysing, writing and using their own recipes
- Recounts - recounting all about making a smoothie, what worked well and what could be changed in the future.
- Stories by a well known author- as a class we will be reading James and the Giant Peach, we will then innovate the story and write our own versions. We will also be thinking about Roald Dahl and how his inspiration for writing came from his own life experiences.
- Plays and using scripts- the children will be looking at playscripts, the layout, stage directions and the dialogue between characters. We will be using Oliver Twist as a basis and will encompass elements of drama and hotseating.
- Poetry - we will be reading examples of harvest poetry, this will be used as a basis to innovate and create our own poems, both in a classical format and also to create shape poems.
- At St William's the children receive a spiral curriculum in maths, this means that they will cover the same topics each term, but the strategies and the work will be different. This helps the children to consolidate their learning.
- The children will cover the following topics: Place Value, Addition and Subtraction, Multiplciation and Division, Fractions, Shape, Measures (including time) and Statistics
- The curriculum will be enhanced by linking the topic wherever possible. Links include the study of nutritional values (percentages, measurements etc), recipes that will be doubled/ halved and ratios included. Shape through the study of packaging where nets will be designed.
Design and Technology
The children will be analysing and making their own soups
We will be learning all about the Bible, how it is made up of the Old and New Testament. Children will learn how to find Bible references independently and share stories that have some meaning to them.
The chidlren will be finding out about Moses and Abraham, and how they are so significant to our faith.
All children have PE on a Monday afternoon. Fleetwood Town Community Trust team teach with members of staff, this is to share their expertise and to upskill our teachers.
Some chidlren will go swimming on a Thursday morning, individuals will recieve a letter about this. The children that are selected are the children that have not yet met their Key Stage 2 swimming objectives: to swim 25m on their front and back, to swim using a recognisable stroke and to complete a water safety activity.
