Teachers units of work for their class based on assessment and prior knowledge. The objectives are taken directly from the National Curriculum for the year group, however, these are adapted to the emerging needs of the children through assessment for learning. We call these year group objectives ‘stages’ and these are shared with children through our writing and reading Learning Ladders (click here to view learning ladders). As you will notice, Stages 3 & 4, 5 & 6 are combined as they are under the National Curriculum. Individual lessons meet the needs of children through our ‘Metal’ system of differentiation.
