What does your child learn at school each day? Find information about our curriculum subjects here.
In Foundation, Year 1 and Year 2, our children follow the Read, Write Inc programme. They are grouped by their ability and placed at the appropriate stage. More information can be found on the Parent Pages of the Ruth Miskin Read Write Inc website.
From Year 2 - Year 6, children who have left the RWI programme learn using the Talk for Writing approach. This is a multi sensory approach to learning quality texts and innovating them.
Reading is fundamental to all aspects of the curriculum and needs to be taught well throughout school. Reading is led through Read Write Inc in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1, and taught through guided sessions in Key Stage 2. All teachers are commited to spend time reading quality texts on a daily basis, so that children are immersed in rich language.
Children from Y1 to Y6 follow the White Rose scheme of work. This is based on the mastery approach, which works on the principle that children develop deep understanding about mathematical concepts, rather than learning rapidly. Where apppropriate children begin their learning using objects, moving on to a pictorial representation then using that knowledge to work on abstract concepts. This is known as the CPA approach.
We follow the Understanding Christianity scheme of learning, as recommended by the Church of England education office.
The curriculum is built on a two year rolling programme. Each topic is built around the expectations of the National Curriculum.
