We have also produced guides below which set out the main objectives for each Year Group in the core subjects of: Reading, Writing, Spoken Language, Mathematics and Science






How do we implement it?

We believe in making learning experiences exciting, fun and unforgettable! By the time our children leave us, they will have blossomed into independent, creative and intelligent learners who achieve well.

Our approach to the curriculum allows us to tailor learning to suit the needs of each child in our school through inspiring and challenging first-hand experiences. We believe that children learn best when they are excited about what they are going to do and we cover much more than just the New National Curriculum.

Broadly speaking, we divide our curriculum areas into half-termly topics.

How are our half-termly topics planned?

Within each of our half-termly topics, we have a key ‘Subject Driver’ which, as it says, drives the topic forwards. We try to introduce the topic through an exciting ‘hook’ or ‘take-off’ which sets the tone of the topic so children know what they are setting out to achieve in the form of the ‘Big Picture’. During each topic we cover all other curriculum subjects, some of which will link closely to topics, and others which may be taught more discretely e.g. maths, phonics, spelling and grammar. We have a variety of reading schemes to ensure that children’s preferences are met. The core scheme is Oxford Reading Tree. The core Phonics scheme is Read, Write Inc., supplemented by other phonics materials.
