Reading Room

Boy reading a bookWe are rigorous in our approach to teaching reading and begin with phonic learning that is fun, frequent and fast.

We use one main programme, Letters and Sounds, which is complimented and enriched by other resources such as the Jolly Phonics scheme.

Our reading scheme is largely based on Oxford Reading Tree, and Collins Big Cat books, but again this is enriched by books from other sources, including of course real books!

Math's Magic

The children are given opportunities to solve problems, and make connections across other curriculum areas, through stories, songs, games and play.

All children are encouraged to find strategies for mathematical learning that suits them best.

This might include gathering the correct resources to help them (e.g number squares, counters etc.) or using pictures, diagrams or number sentences.

When they are ready, children begin using different mental strategies, and record their findings more formally.

Science Scene

Through our science teaching children are supported in developing their enjoyment and interest in science, and become aware of it’s contribution to all aspects of everyday life.

This is built on children’s natural curiosity and their sense of wonder in the world around them.

The children engage in a range of investigations and practical activities, using the language and vocabulary of science.

They further their enquiry by asking questions and making suggestions as to how an investigation can be carried out, and predicting outcomes.

They then record, discuss and interpret their findings.

Curriculum
In September 2014 the curriculum changed for maintained schools throughout England. The core subjects of English, Maths and Science remain at the heart of the National Curriculum alongside the foundation subjects: Art, Computing, Design and Technology, Geography, History, Music, Personal, Social, Health and citizenship education and physical education. R.E is taught as dictated by the locally agreed syllabus.
The changes mean that in many areas of the curriculum there are higher expectations. In Numeracy, for example, there is now a much greater focus on arithmetic and working with fractions. In Literacy there is a greater emphasis on grammar, spelling and punctuation.
The ways in which progress through the curriculum is measured is also in the process of changing, and we will give you more information on this in due course.
Here are our curriculum maps for Early Years (Reception), Year 1 and Year 2. Read in conjunction with our curriculum outlines they should give you a good idea of what your child is learning at school.
