Welcome to the Lapwings page of the Southery Academy website.

The Lapwings is a class for year 1 and 2 pupils and our teacher is Mr Cawley. Mr Cawley is supported by Mrs Porter in the mornings and in the afternoons by Mrs Gallagher.

Children should continue their learning at home. This could include a weekly set of spellings to learn, regularly practicing their number bonds, and be heard reading by an adult at home.

Any learning at home will help to both consolidate and support the learning the children have done in class. Please do not do it for them but we encourage you to show a supportive interest in what they are doing. In mathematics work, please make especially sure that you do not encourage them to use calculation methods which are not suitable.

When you hear your child reading, please go for quality rather than quantity – just a few pages from their scheme book each evening, rather than trying to get through the whole book in one go. Please remember to correct any errors they make, encourage expression and fluency, and make sure you discuss what they have just read with them (which helps develop those important skills of inference and deduction).

Please see the Autumn term Curriculum 2018 overview for parents

Thank you for your support.

Mr A Cawley
