Curriculum Introduction

We want children to be able to articulate themselves, be good readers and writers and be able to carry out mathematical calculations. For this reason, these areas of learning underpin all that we do at the school. The greater part of the curriculum time is spent on ensuring that these skills are taught to your child. The reading scheme we use in the school is based around Decodable Reading Books in the early stages of reading. This ensures that the reading of words is developed over time through a scheme that gets progressively more challenging. This is coupled with the other areas of learning such as Science and History and we use these to create a 'Themed Learning' approach, so that your child becomes immersed in an area of learning during their time of study. 

This means that subjects can be linked together to support learning around a particular 'theme'. For example on the theme of the Romans, the children can use drama to explore life in Roman times, they can write historical stories and newspaper accounts of significant events, they can explore mosaic art and make Roman shields, they can learn about sun dials and the Roman Clock and become fully immersed in the area they are learning about. Not all learning can be linked to a theme and so, for example, Sport and PE are taught separately, although sometimes dance can lend itself to the 'theme'.

The content for this learning comes from the Department of Education and is taken from the National Curriculum.

To keep you up to date with what areas your child is studying please look at the Year group links on the left hand side. In here you will find the current theme and areas of learning that your child will be studying. You will also find newsletters and Parental booklets and guides that give you ideas and information - please take a look.

At the beginning they come into:

Reception

This area builds on their learning from pre-school or nursery and develops the child's language skills and play based learning.

Throughout this time there is a key focus on reading, writing, number and speaking and learning. Alongside this there is a focus on developing social skills and learning to be part of a community.

A key element of this is the teaching of phonics. We use a scheme called letters and sounds and this helps to teach the children the sounds of our alphabet and the letter names. Please see the phonics section for more detail on this.
