Your Child's Learning


Here you can view curriculum and homework expectations for each year group. Curriculum maps for each year group can be found on the relevant year group's curriculum page. For a more detailed overview of individual subject objectives covered in each year group, please click on the assessment map tag. 


At Furze Platt Junior School we believe that all pupils need to be academically challenged and supported if they are to reach their full potential. We pride ourselves on the variety and quality of interventions we provide to achieve this.


Currently we are operating the 'Read Write Inc' Phonics scheme and Oxford and Rapid reading schemes, which feed into our guided reading and reading for fun sessions.


More details are available from the Inclusion Manager or your child's class teacher.


Use the menu, on the previous option screen, to select curriculum details for your year group. Further curriculum information is provided on your child's achievement grids (These have been uploaded and are in the children's home/school diaries).


Our SeeSaw is updated weekly by class teachers; giving parents and pupils up to date information on lesson content for the week, homework tasks and any relevant resources. Children will also post on SeeSaw work that they are proud of and also reviews of their progress and achievement. 


Parents and pupils can also contact the class teacher through email or SeeSaw.


Please contact your child's class teacher if you need help signing onto SeeSaw or using it's features.




It is always difficult to get the homework balance right for the children. We are also aware that parents have different views regarding the setting or and the amount of homework set. At FPJS, we have revised the way in which we set homework in order to make homework relevant to the child's learning, interesting and also celebrated in school.

We set weekly homework in all year groups. This focuses on curriculum expectation within Grammar, Punctuation, Reading and Maths.

Children are also given a Homework project grid or 'extra challenges' projects that link to their termly topic. They can then choose activities off of these, within the guidelines, and hand them in throughout the term. Children are rewarded with extra House Points for completing these additional homework tasks. 

Children are also set weekly Spellings and also we expect children to read at home daily (to be recorded in the child's home/school diary).

If a parent wants to complete additional homework with their child then please do contact the class teacher to discuss suitable tasks or refer to the 'extra challenges' grid for ideas. Parents and pupils can also see what is being taught by slicking on the curriculum maps and also see what is assessed by clicking on the relevant assessment maps. Further information is available from the class teacher.

FPJS also subscribes to 'MyMaths' which is an on-line Maths site. All pupils have a login and password for this site and they can use it at home to revisit areas of Maths, consolidate their learning or play Maths games linking to the topics that they are learning.


All working together


It is important that we all work together as a team. To ensure that we all understand our role in educating children we have devised home-school agreements for us all to reference to.
