Curriculum

In Reception year pupils are taught using the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.

Phonics is taught using the ‘Jolly Phonics’ scheme in Reception and ‘Letters and Sounds’ at KS1. Our primary reading scheme is the Oxford Learning Tree, though we do complement this with works from other schemes. 

From Year One onwards, pupils are taught the subjects covered by the National Curriculum 2014. These are: English, mathematics, science, history, geography, physical education, art, music, technology and computing. 

We use the ‘White Rose’ maths scheme as a basis for maths teaching across the school.

 

Parents are sent an outline of the curriculum coverage at the beginning of each term in the form of a letter and topic web. This gives you the opportunity to support your child’s learning. You can see all the current topic webs on the individual class pages of this website. 

The whole school curriculum framework can be seen here.

If you have any books or items linked to a topic or learning, we are always happy for you to send them into school. Equally, if you have a job or hobby that links to our learning we would love to hear from you; there is nothing like first-hand experience to inspire children in their learning.
