Current Learning

Our curriculum is based on the National Curriculum and is designed to develop our vision and values.

Reading at Standens Barn Primary School

Literacy is at the heart of what we do and underpins our curriculum. Reading is essential in its own right but also important for language development, thinking skills, empathy and links with all other areas of learning. Children are taught reading in a variety of ways. Children will read individually and in groups called 'guided reading' and as whole classes. The children will be exposed to a variety of books and genres and this is supported by having a reading book that they will take home as well as a library book. We have an expectation that as parents you will play your part in this and support your child with their reading, by trying to read with them every day for at least 20 minutes.

During the school year, we will also invite you in to see reading in action. This will help you see how phonics is taught and how this links with understanding the book as well. Our phonics teaching is based on Read, Write Inc.

Maths Curriculum at Standens Barn Primary School

Our maths teaching is based on the White Rose scheme of work and is underpinned by the bar modelling theory of mathematical teaching, which is supported by My Maths. There is a strong emphasis on developing number work and fluency alongside problem-solving and relational understanding. This ensures that children quickly develop their number bonds and times tables knowledge so that they can apply this to mathematical understanding.
