National Curriculum Learning Walls – A Strategy to Support Next Steps in Learning
The Learning Walls below are taken from the New National Curriculum and they outline the expectations as the minimum requirements your child must meet in order to ensure continued progress. They have been converted to child friendly language to enable most of our children to access them and then reproduced in a handy wall format - several boxes have been deliberately left empty so that children may add their own targets in due course.
The children will be using the Learning Walls in school to establish their next steps in learning – the things they need to work on to progress towards achieving Age Related Expectations by the end of the school year.
After taking feedback we have decided to share the Learning Walls with parents/carers so that you know what your child is working on in school. We will be encouraging the children to self-assess by creating regular opportunities to reflect on their achievements during lessons. We will of course be supporting our younger readers and children who have difficulty in accessing the written words. It would be helpful if you could do the same. Any extra support you can give your children to achieve these expectations is greatly valued.
Over the next few weeks and months we will write to you again and let you know how we have developed this strategy further and then discuss your child’s progress at the end of the spring term.
