  1. Will there be a mixed Year 3/4 GPS scheme please? Also, where can I find the mixed Year 3/4 White Rose Place Value planning? Thank you for your great resources.

    • Hi Lorraine,

      Not immediately, as we need all the notes and guidance written before we can do that. The GPS Scheme is new to this September and so is still ongoing through this academic year so we will definitely aim to have this available by September 2019! Thanks, Emily.

  2. Hi Louisa,

    I hope you are doing ok ? I was just wondering if the ‘small steps’ for GPV would be 1 lesson per week, or numerous lessons per week? Thanks

    • Good afternoon Julia,

      I am very well, I hope you are too? The lessons average between 1 – 2 lessons per week. Our guidance states to spread the lessons within a block out over the weeks suggested on the yearly overview.

      I hope this helps

      Louisa 🙂
