Curriculum Overview

CURRICULUM OVERVIEW

The School operates a connected and creative curriculum, which incorporates all the knowledge, skills and objectives of the National Curriculum.   Our curriculum is a themed, skills based approach and is supplemented by classroom environments that help to immerse the children in their learning; the theme overview is below.

Curriculum Overview

To supplement the teaching of reading and writing we use Read Write inc. predominantly in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 and throughout the school for those with additional needs.

Maths is supported through the use of Hit the Button, Times Tables Rockstars as well as Numicon as a practical resource to support the National Curriculum.

Homework packs, that can be found on the class pages, highlight the relevant parts of the National Curriculum which will be covered in their current projects.  In addition parents can access the National Curriculum online.
