Phonics at WPS
In September 2012 we started to use the Read Write Inc approach to teaching phonics. Read Write Inc is mainly taught in our Early Years Foundation Stage, Y1 and Y2 classes. All children take part in small group, daily phonics lessons with children in Y2 moving on to daily comprehension skills lessons also using the Read Write Inc approach.
You can follow the link below to find our more about Read Write Inc.
WPS Calculations Policy June 2017
We updated our School Calculations Policy to reflect the requirements of new curriculum 2014.
This policy was revised in June 2017.
The policy details the methods used to teach mathematics across school and ensures a consistent approach in our teaching methods. All staff have received training on the use of this policy.
Calculation workshops for parents and carers are held annually . These are a great opportunity for you to find out about the methods we use to teach maths, especially calculations.
WPS Marking and Feedback Policy March 2017
The WPS Marking and Feedback Policy was updated in March 2017. The policy explains how teachers mark children's work and give children specific feedback on how to improve. The overall aim of the Marking and Feedback Policy is ensure children know the next steps in their learning and what they need to do to improve. It is also to recognise the achievements children have made and to celebrate their progress.
