Curriculum at Battle

Maths No Problem!

All of our staff have received training in the series 'Maths No Problem!' which is developed from the approach known as Singapore Maths.

The series Incorporates the use of resources, problem solving and group work, the Primary Series is child-centred and fun to teach. With a focus on teaching maths for mastery, the series is designed to improve the maths confidence of both teachers and learners.

Over the course of the year Miss Uphill along with other staff at Battle Primary Academy will be running workshops for parents about the new series and the new approach to Maths.

In the meantime please click the link below to find out further information about the approach and for the opportunity to watch some videos demonstrating the methods.

Alongside Maths No Problem! some of our children participate in sessions run by Third Space. In October 2016 we received Ambassador status!

Phonics

At Battle Primary Academy we follow the Read Write Inc. programme for the teaching of systematic phonics.

In 2016 87% (national average - 81%) of our children in Year 1 achieved the expected standard in the Year 1 Phonics Check. Congratulations to all our Year 1 children!

Children from Reception to Year 4 are assessed and taught accordingly to their decoding ability. Children receive a daily phonics and writing session which is taught by our staff trained in the delivery of the programme.

Parents can access further information and videos on how to support children are home by clicking this link:

Children who are assessed as no longer requiring the Read Write Inc. programme are then moved onto our Literacy and Language programme

Topic

Pupils take part in cross curricular learning through the week. Often they go on visits or have visitors come into school to help them fully immerse themselves within the topics.

Parents are invited in at various points during the academic year to share in the learning their children have been doing, parents are given the opportunity to feedback on their children's work and learning in their child's topic book.

Homework for the half term is related to the topic, copies of the current homework grids are available on each year groups webpage.
