From September 2016 Lyneham Primary School delivers a Maths Mastery curriculum which heavily emphasises the importance to develop mathematical fluency, reasoning and problem solving. We work closely with several local schools in delivering this initiative as well as using resources created by the White Rose Math Hub. For more information on Maths Mastery please visit this website.
At Lyneham Primary School we strive to promote reading and the acquisition of reading skills from day one. To support this children are set spelling and reading homework weekly and there is an expectation that children will be support and heard read at home daily. Since January 2016 the school has worked with CLPE to deliver the Power of Reading to all year groups, this not only supports reading but also supports progress in writing. For more information on the power of reading see this website.
Within EYFS and KS1 we teach Phonics using Letters and Sounds, if you would like any further information about Phonics please speak to the class teachers.
Other curriculum areas
Our other curriculum areas are supported by the Dimensions Curriculum, linked to the books being covered within the Power of Reading, this ensures coverage of the 2014 National Curriculum. For more information on the Dimensions Curriculum visit this website.
