Curriculum

 

Physical Education ( PE )

At Thorntree Primary School we believe a high-quality physical education curriculum should inspire all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically-demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as teamwork and respect. PE lays the importance in the value of exercise and a lifelong interest in a range of activities. It also seeks to promote enthusiasm for physical activity and challenge.

Mathematics

Our aim is to develop the love and enjoyment of maths, as well as the skills and knowledge needed for life. The children in Early Years Foundation Stage are taught maths every day with a focused session once a week. The teaching and learning of maths takes place every day for at least 1 hour in Years 1 to 6. The sessions begin with a focused counting session to ensure that all children have a secure grasp of the number system. This is followed by a mental and oral session to develop the children’s ability to manipulate numbers quickly and accurately. The main teaching focus of the lesson is a balance of taught skills and knowledge, and their application of these to solve problems and carry out investigations.

In addition, children in KS1 have a mental maths ‘5 a day’ session, which consists of 5 questions to reinforce the basic rules of number i.e. addition, subtraction, multiplication and division and provide an opportunity to apply these skills.

In KS2, pupils are challenged weekly with a range of real-life problem-solving sessions. The focus of these sessions is to challenge the pupils’ understanding of taught concepts and encourage them to apply them to a range of tasks. The constant application of maths concepts is fundamental in achieving mastery in maths.
