We are proud of our broad and balanced curriculum which takes a thematic approach but is centred around meeting the expectations of the National Curriculum. Each class will study a specific topic each term and as many links to other subjects as possible are woven into this teaching to help connect learning. We believe that this makes the learning more meaningful, valuable and exciting for our children. Where we can, we enrich the curriculum with visits, visitors or other exciting means to capture the children’s imagination. We believe that reading and writing are fundamental skills to transfer across the curriculum, and as such, we encourage reading and writing throughout the whole curriculum.
During 2021 and 2022, we are re-developing our school curriculum as a direct impact of parental, pupil and staff communication. Our revised curriculum aims to make further connections with learning, developing a progressive curriculum that builds on previous learning. For further information, see our new curriculum matrices below.
The basic skills of reading and writing are taught to our Early Years and Key Stage One children through DfES Letters and Sounds scheme for phonics and Pearson Phonics Bug, Project X and Oxford Reading Tree reading schemes.
