Every term, each class has a target for Literacy and Numeracy. This is a goal that the whole class are working towards achieving together.
There are usually two targets for Literacy (one for reading and one for writing), and one for Mathematics.
Throughout a week, some time within lessons is given to focussing on the targets. Progress will then be evaluated and at the end of the term, each child's progress will be reported to the relevant subject leader.
Why are we doing this?
At Pearson Primary School we are committed to raising standards for all children.
By using curricular targets, your child should know what they are aiming towards and can be in control of their own learning.
Parents and carers will also be aware of the targets which will help following up work at home.
At Pearson Primary School we always try to teach all lessons - including curricular targets in a fun and creative way.
Maths: Understanding multiplication and division facts to 12x12 including related decimal numbers...
Can you count in twos?
Can you tell me 7x9?
Can you work out 0.6x8?
Children in Pearson Primary School are working towards meeting these targets. Help your children to understand their multiplication tables by counting with them in twos or fives, or you could ask them different multiplication sentences and work with them to find the answer...
Literacy: Setting your own targets to improve your writing.
What do you like about your writing? What could you do to improve this? What does your work need to include to improve it? These are the questions that children at Pearson Primary School are asking to help them to improve their writing.
