We welcome, value and share the cultures, traditions and languages of all our families. We provide consistently high standards of teaching and learning and expect all children to do well. We teach children to be responsible, independent and proud of themselves and to show respect for everyone in our community.

- To promote the spiritual, moral, cultural and physical development of all pupils.
- To ensure the four main purposes of the National Curriculum are fulfilled.
1. To ensure all children have an entitlement to develop the knowledge, skills, understanding and attitudes necessary to become responsible citizens.
2. To establish standards and set targets for improvement.
3. To ensure progression, continuity and coherence in pupil's learning.
4. To actively promote and increase public understanding of all those interested or involved in education within the school community.
- To ensure that the four guiding principles of the new EYFS Curriculum are fulfilled.
1. Every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured.
2. Children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships.
3. Children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents/ carers.
4. Children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates. The framework covers the education and care of all children in early years provision, including children with special educational needs and disabilities.
Medium Term Plans
The autumn term will allow the children to settle into their new environment of learning. The children will begin to get used to a routine and explore the different learning facilities we have at Roe Green. They will also learn about our 5 school rules and how they can make sure that they are following them.
Our theme for this term is “Amazing Me!” and our key texts that we will be focusing on are “The Koala Who Could” by Rachel Bright and “On Sudden Hill” by Linda Sarah. Through these focus books, the children will be able to express themselves and learn about each other’s good qualities and how to take risks in a safe environment. Links to learning about what amazing things our body can do will also be explored through PE.
In maths, we will be learning about key concepts such as matching, sorting and comparing through a range of practical activities. These concepts will further support the learning when we move onto learning about the numbers 1, 2 and 3 and 2D shapes.
Through PSHE, the children will be engaged in a variety of activities and discussions regarding following the rules, our well-being, and having a positive attitude.
This term Year 2’S learning is linked to the theme of ’autumn’ and ‘changes’. Children will study autumn by observing changes in the environment, e.g. changes in weather, changes in colours and even changes that take place in characters of alternative tales that we are studying e.g. The Wolf’s story. Later in the second half of the term we will learn about changes that took place in the nursing profession as a consequence of actions by significant individuals from the Victorian era and from the First World War e.g. Florence Nightingale and Edith Cavell.
