George Tomlinson Primary School has adopted the Singapore approach to teaching Mathematics. This year, we have introduced Inspire Maths for Key Stages 1 and 2 which is Oxford University Press’s Singapore Maths programme.
Reception and Key Stage 1 follow Ruth Miskin’s Read Write Inc. programme for phonics, reading and writing. This system, published by Oxford University Press, teaches the children the sounds they need to blend and read words fluently.
Our aim is to provide fun, engaging in a variety of PE sessions and to deliver a wide range of extra curricular sports clubs during lunchtime and after school. We run clubs for all; gifted and talented, targeted children and all ages.
The school follows the Waltham Forest SACRE agreed syllabus for the teaching of Religious Education in Key Stages 1 and 2. This syllabus covers learning about Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism.
The Art and DT provision is linked to the topic that children are learning in Historyand Geography. For example, children in Year 3 who are learning about the Stone Age make Stone Age houses, tools and jewellery.
