In Primary Orange we take part in activities which meet our individual needs and work towards aspects of the national curriculum. We enjoy being independent and becoming better learners for life. We focus on developing Numeracy skills such as number recognition, adding and counting as well as Literacy skills reading, writing, communication and understanding. We are using the Read Write Inc. phonics program and use The Dandelion reading scheme for reading as well as Big Cat phonics to support reading. We like to have fun in our Literacy and Numeracy lessons! We follow a Topic based curriculum. We have been learning about different topics such as castles and amazing buildings and Cinderella! We access a number of different lessons across the Academy, including Art, Design and Technology, PE, ICT, Food Technology and Music. Our friendships are important to us and we love to work hard at improving our social interaction skills in small groups throughout the school week.
