We organise children in different ways for different educational purposes. Each year group has a third teacher enabling children to be taught in smaller groups for mathematics. In English, the third teacher as used to complete writing conferences, work with smaller focus groups and partnership teach with their colleagues. Children work in a range of learning arenas, including within a large group, in small groups and paired work.
Friendship and mixed-ability groupings are also used, particularly when children are encouraged to work together. Children who need extra support in literacy or mathematics will be taught for part of the day individually or in very small groups.
A range of clubs are offered each term from 3:30 pm – 4:20 pm. These range from booster classes for core subjects, such as mathematics and literacy, to clubs for developing skills such as social communication, risk taking and fine and gross motor skills. A range of sports clubs are also offered.
