I am delighted with the progress that my daughters have made at Minet – you have nurtured them to achieve excellent progress in key learning areas such as reading and maths.

Maths

At Minet Nursery and Infant School we teach Minet Maths. This is a fun and engaging lesson sequence which has been designed by teachers here at Minet. Children  are given the opportunity to reflect on their learning as they are alternatively supported and challenged as appropriate. They  develop confidence and mental fluency with whole numbers, counting and place value through working with numerals, words and the four operations.

School data show that over recent years, pupils’ overall attainment has been rising at a faster rate than nationally. Ofsted 2014

English

We put a strong emphasis on oracy as this is essential in learning to communicate in English and to learn the skills of reading and writing. We use the Bug Club reading scheme which is a highly engaging whole-school reading programme with print and eBooks, featuring well-loved characters. We also follow the ‘Letters and Sounds’ phonic programme.

Science

At Minet Infant school we believe that Science is a body of knowledge built up through experimental testing of ideas. Science is also a practical way of finding reliable answers to questions we may ask about the world around us. Science in our school is about developing children’s ideas and ways of working that enable them to make sense of the world in which they live through investigation, as well as using and applying process skills.

Religious Education

Children learn about different world faiths at Minet with a key focus on Christianity, Islam and Hinduism, following the Hillingdon guidance. Children have an opportunity to reflect on their own experiences and to develop an awareness of spiritual and moral issues in their lives.  Our RE learning is also linked to our school values and children’s learning in Rights Respecting.  We celebrate various festivals and explore the customs followed by other religions in an enquiring and awe inspiring way.
