Groups The children are grouped according to assessments made of their progress. There is movement between the groups. In literacy groups are taught by all members of staff following the same R Write Inc format. In Big Maths we have 3 groups but within that group other members of staff work alongside teachers. We also have before school groups- 8:20am-8:40am. These are to boost phonics. If your child is invited to attend it does not mean they are struggling.
