Our Core Curriculm

English

At Osborne we place great emphasis on the teaching of Reading. It involves developing both oral and reading comprehension skills. In lessons, teachers focus on improving a student’s ability to read with fluency and expression. This builds a strong vocabulary so each student can understand and recall what they have read.

Students are encouraged to talk about,  communicate and be ambitious with their Writing. Teachers focus on teaching elements of VCOP which is about enabling students to make greater use of a wider vocabulary, connectives, interesting openers and varied punctuation to up level their Writing. Students set goals and develop a wide range of skills to improve their Writing as they move through the school.

Mathematics

At Osborne we believe that Mathematics creates opportunities for and enriches the life of each child at our school. Daily Mathematics lessons focus on each child’s point of need, making it personalised and meaningful, believing each child is capable of success. We look for and explore meaningful connections with other areas of the curriculum thus hoping to create confident users and communicators of Mathematics.
