Computing

At Paulton Infant School we highly value digital literacy. We have invested in the latest technology so children can explore computing in an exciting, up-to-date and safe environment.

Early Years

At Paulton Infant School our aim is to provide a happy and stimulating environment where every child will be given the best opportunities to achieve their full potential and an education which will nurture the needs of the individual.

Assessment is at the heart of teaching and learning and it provides evidence of successful Teaching and Learning. Teacher Assessment is ongoing and made throughout your child's time at school - we believe this to be the most important form of assessment as it enables us to plan work for individual children and make judgements about their progress
Phonics and Reading

Our aim is to for children to develop a love of reading and be able to read for pleasure. Children are taught to read through phonics lessons, whole class and guided sessions and are heard to read individually. We have a wide variety of reading books both fiction and non-fiction that are sent home weekly with a yellow reading record to develop that home-school link. Children also have the opportunity to visit our school library.

At Paulton, children learn phonics throughout EYFS and Key Stage 1. Phonics is the first important step for children in learning to read and developing that love of reading. Research shows that when phonics is taught in a structured way – starting with the easiest sounds and progressing through to the most complex – it is the most effective way of teaching young children to read. We mainly follow the Letters and Sounds approach to teach phonics.

Mathematics

Mathematics is a tool for everyday life.It provides a way of viewing and making sense of the world. It is used to communicate information and ideas and to tackle a range of practical and real life problems. At Paulton Infants we have adopted the mastery approach across all ages in order to allow children to explore ideas in depth and to 'master' their learning.

Our aims are that all children will:

  • Enjoy mathematics 

  • Communicate with others. They should have opportunities to explore fluency, reasoning and problem solving.

  • Use initiative in applying mathematical knowledge to new situations, realising that their own ways of tackling problems are as valuable as traditional methods.

Writing

Our aim is to motivate children to develop writing as a important communication tool. We have lots of fun building our fine motor skills and when we are ready we use pre cursive script to form our letters, eventually developing into a neat, cursive script. We learn to write through a variety of different ways including writing descriptions, stories, poems, recounts and non-fiction often linked to our topic areas.We also have discrete handwriting sessions within our classes.

Science

Science is fascinating and fun. At Paulton Infant School, we start to explore the world around us through our learning on animals, plants, materials and seasonal changes. Where possible, we endeavour to link this with our exciting, termly topics.
