Within Lickey Hills Language Base, each curriculum area is adapted to the needs of the current cohort of pupils. This creates a flexible and bespoke curriculum which changes annually. Additionally, many children are in mainstream classes for some areas of the curriculum. Visit the mainstream Year Group pages for curriculum overviews.
Spellings will be sent out on Wednesdays to practice at home before the tests on the following Monday. Current spellings can be found online on the link to the right
Maths homework (usually based on times tables and number facts) are also set on Wednesday and due back by the following Monday. We also strongly encourage the children to read at least three times a week at home for 20 minutes a time.
Please make sure you have your PE kits in school for our sporting activities: Please send your child to school in their kit on their PE day - where PE lessons are outdoors, you may wish to consider your child having a tracksuit for the day.
