Rosebank SchoolListening, Responding, Learning

Maths and English


At Rosebank, we aim to develop each pupil’s ability within speaking and listening, reading and writing, so they are able to effectively communicate their needs and share their thoughts and ideas, as well as reaching their full academic potential. We aim to instil a lifelong passion for reading and writing by supporting our pupils to develop self-confidence, resilience and a sense of achievement, while acknowledging and supporting them in overcoming potential barriers.

How can I help my child with English?  Reading and writing are taught using the Twinkl Phonics scheme. Information on how to help your child to read using phonics is included on this page. As your child begins to learn to read they will read books are colour banded by difficulty and link to your child current phonics level. 


Mathematics is central to life and learning.  Many tasks in later life are based on the earliest skills such as sorting and classifying.   At Rosebank the teaching of Mathematics will help all children to develop the ability for logical thought and decision making skills.
