Orford CEVA Primary School


CEVA Primary School

Supporting Learning at Home

Please click on each curriculum area to find out some ways in which you can support learning at home. Your child's class teacher will also make some additional suggestions at the end each term's school report.

Literacy and Reading 

At Orford, we follow the Letters and Sounds scheme for phonics and the Cliff Moon Reading scheme.





Which methods for calculation do you teach my child at school?

We use the White Rose maths scheme in all classes at Orford CEVA Primary

Classes 2 and 3 use Sumdog for their weekly maths homework



We use the Emmanuel project from the Diocese of Ipswich and St Edmundsbury for our RE

There are some activity sheets to do together at home about our current home-school value. These can be found by clicking on 'our learning' - 'our values'


Useful links for extending science learning at home (you can sign up to all for free):

Please see each individual class pages for a topic overview each term.
