Welcome to the Narnia Class
What makes the Earth Angry?
At Caythorpe we follow the White Rose Maths Mastery scheme of work. When taught to master maths, children develop their mathematical fluency without resorting to rote learning and are able to solve non-routine maths problems without having to memorise procedures.
The English curriculum will be taught through a topic approach wherever possible.
We follow the Lincolnshire Agreed syllabus for RE. This term the focus is Christmas and the Nativity story.
Please can your child keep a named PE kit in school all week (dark shorts and/or jogging bottoms, a white T-shirt and trainers or plimsolls.) If the weather is fine, PE may take place outdoors so please make sure your child has an outdoor kit. Please can you also ensure that all items of school clothing are named to prevent any mix-ups at the end of the day.
At Caythorpe we are proud of our personalised curriculum with many opportunities to enrich learning experiences. Please see our curriculum pages which lists experiences we believe children should complete to achieve their Caythorpe Passport to learning.

At Caythorpe we strive to develop a reading for pleasure culture. In Key Stage Two children use the Accelerated Reader Program. A student reads a book, takes an online quiz, and gets immediate feedback. Students respond to regular feedback and are motivated to make progress with their reading skills.
Children have an opportunity to quiz and change their reading books everyday. However it is helpful if reading diaries are signed to ensure children are reading, engaging and understanding what they read. Please ensure you listen to your child read regularly and sign their reading diaries.
Our Big Bang for "What can we learn from the Ancient Egyptians" went like this...
We had a great start to our topic "Would you rather be an Athenian or a Spartan?" We ended our topic with an Olympic games event.
All children have homework books and a task sheet. Each homework task is worth points. A copy of this term's homework tasks can be downloaded below. Children should aim to complete a total of 20 points each half term. They may choose their homework task for the week from the termly list (Year 4 and 5 tasks downloadable below). Please could all homework tasks be handed in on a Thursday so we may celebrate homework together on Fridays. Remember to as creative as you wish for each task.
