A video discussing how 3P Learning’s digital resources support the delivery of the new English primary curriculum has been released via NAHT School Leaders TV, produced by ITN Productions. The video was showcased at last week’s National Association of Headteachers’ Annual Conference.
Reading Eggs from 3P Learning is a digital resource for literacy, designed to help children to learn to read and to develop a love of reading for pleasure. The overarching aim for English in the new curriculum is to promote high standards of literacy by equipping pupils with a strong command of the written and spoken word and develop a love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment.
As Dr Jonathan Rogers, Head of English at Brunswick House Primary School who are featured in the video explains, “One of the main areas that the new curriculum focuses on is reading and reading for pleasure. It has an impact on children’s welfare and their success as they go on into adult life. So we have used Reading Eggs as one of a variety of measures, to raise the profile of reading and to really focus on reading for pleasure and the huge impact that can have on a child’s wellbeing.
I think it stands us in good stead. We’ve had a really good whole school focus on reading for pleasure. We know that it ticks a lot of boxes that Ofsted are looking to see covered.”
Mathletics, 3P’s leading digital resource for numeracy which is currently used by more than 5,000 schools across the UK, provides a host of content designed to help support teachers to ensure that students develop the new maths curriculum’s key skills: fluency, problem solving and reasoning. Mathletics is proven to increase learner engagement, confidence and motivation in maths whilst having a positive impact on results.
Claire Randall,Year 5 Maths Co-Ordinator at Brunswick House Primary School says, “With the new curriculum that’s coming in I think you’ll find that expectations for the children have suddenly got higher. The great thing about Mathletics is that it will follow in line with the curriculum and will support the teachers as they are delivering the new curriculum.”
Rosemary Dymond, Headteacher of Riverview Junior School, also featured in the video, says, “The new curriculum is more demanding at problem solving but we have found that Mathletics has given the confidence for [our pupils] to go through a number of skills to find the answer to a question, so problem solving is a very important aspect for the children using Mathletics for that.”
