Curriculum

On this page you will find an outline of the curriculum for each class for the 2020-21 school year. 
 
Phonics
 
Children in Class 1 & 2 follow Letters & Sounds as their phonics programme. This is taught through a daily discrete phonics session delivered to each year group independently. The teachers use activities from Letters & Sounds to structure this teaching and there are opportunities throughout the day to reinforce and extend children's learning. The specific order of teaching for Reception Year is given in the Foundation Stage document below.
 
Reading
 
The school uses its own reading scheme based around Oxford Reading Tree and Floppy's Phonics, but supplemented by texts from a variety of other reading schemes as well as texts which do not form part of a reading scheme. 
 
Covid-19 Note
 
Some aspects of the planned curriculum this year may change due to the impact of school closures in the 2019-20 school year. This will happen as we work to catch children up on areas of work missed last year, and as a result of the different experiences children will have had.
 
Curriculum Development Note
 
This Curriculum is under development and is subject to change during the year. Please contact your child’s class teacher for the most up-to-date information.
We plan English directly from the National Curriculum in England organised into text types shown in the documents above. This document gives more detail on the precise aspects of this subject which are taught for each individual year group. We use the White Rose Maths Hub mixed-year planning to structure our mathematics learning.
