Teachers use a wide range of questioning strategies to encourage active participation, build confidence and connect with prior learning.
Provide pupils with models and worked examples to help them learn to solve problems faster.
Teachers will check for pupil understanding and guide pupil practice.
Pupils will be provided with opportunities for independent, extensive practice to allow them to develop fluency and consolidate learning.
We will provide pupils with appropriate support and scaffolds to assist them in their learning.

Teachers will, at every opportunity, make explicit cross-curricular links to enhance learning.
The curriculum and it’s learning experiences are designed and sequenced in order to ensure children connect old and new knowledge, allowing them to develop competency and fluency across all topics.
The ‘Wolverton Curriculum Framework’ document outlines the aims and ambitions of our curriculum, the learning journey, including our curriculum structure, our approach to evaluation and the expected outcomes of our pupils.
Our curriculum takes full account of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and the current statutory National Curriculum and is planned, with the exception of the Reception class, in phases rather than separate year groups to meet the needs of our mixed age classes.
