Our Children At Work

Curriculum Framework

At Falconbrook we follow the national curriculum which covers the subjects children need to learn. We believe that children achieve best when immersed in their learning.   Each term children follow a themed learning journey, which brings together different subjects.  Learning journeys are designed to inspire the children’s sense wonder and curiosity.

See Curriculum Framework

 

Addition

Make practising number work fun, when possible present it like a game, and always do it together. e.g count the number of cars, or front doors or lamp posts that you and your child see on the way.

Subtraction

Make practising number work fun, when possible present it like a game, and always do it together. E.g With your child put together group of objects and count them (touching each object as you both count). Tell your child to take away a certain number of objects from the group. Then ask them to count how many objects are left.

Multiplication

Make practising number work fun, when possible present it like a game, and always do it together. E.g Children recognise multiplication as being the same as repeated addition; making links with counting in 2s, 5s and 10s. How many… eyes, fingers and toes are there?

Division

Make practising number work fun, when possible present it like a game, and always do it together. E.g Children physically share items into equal groups as practical activities. If we share 10 cherries between 5 children, how many will each child get?
