Literacy and Numeracy Overviews

At Horwich Parish we use the ‘Cornerstones’ curriculum as a basis to plan all subjects. Literacy is taught through each project. All National Curriculum objectives in English are covered through projects or discrete tasks. Additional writing tasks may be provided throughout the year when opportunities arise to provide a meaningful audience and purpose for the children other than listed on each overview.

Whole Plan Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Year 5 Year 6








At Horwich Parish CE school we follow the National Curriculum to teach mathematics. Medium term planning is based on the Lancashire County Council mathematics resources. Sometimes Year groups may deviate from the planning grids to accommodate: extra learning time for reinforcement of a concept, target work and assessments.

Reading Targets/Information

Over the year children are expected to achieve objectives in reading. Read the ‘Targets’ so you can support your child. They will be in your child’s reading  (journal if in Year 3-6 and reading diary if in year 1-2)

We realise that not everybody was able to attend the  meeting to share our new approach to reading. Hopefully the powerpoint will help. We have also photocopied examples from our children’s diaries and annotated them to help you understand how you can support. Thank you for helping.
