Long Term Plan

Termly Overviews

KIRFs (Key Instant Recall Facts) are designed to support the development of the mental skills that underpin much of the maths work in school.  Instant recall facts help enormously with mental agility within maths lessons. When children move onto written calculations, knowing these facts can be very beneficial.  Each child will have a termly handout which sets out their KIRF and other facts which can be practiced at home.  This means that the work at school can be supported at home.  

Spelling - Common Exception Words


The expectation for the attainment of children in Year 6 has grown massively.  In writing, children are expected to spell high frequency words, or common exception words (words we can't use our sounds to spell) correctly. Below is a list of all the words they should be spelling correctly in their independent writing. We will be sending home lists with a range of these spellings on for them to practise ready for their fortnightly test. Children will also be tested on a range of these words at the end of KS2.
