Curriculum

Here you will find a curriculum overview.

We use Letters and Sounds to support our teaching of phonics.

In reading, we use a variety of reading scheme books such as Oxford Reading Tree which are 'banded' with non-scheme books in order to give children a breadth of information.

We teach our topics on a 2 year rolling plan. We are currently on Year 1.

Our Key Stage 2 Science is now taught through the Empiribox scheme. This provides and exciting and engaging experience for all children. The four year program is shown here.

Our PE plan for each year is shown here.

We believe it is important to give children a broad range of experiences. We will support topic work with trips to museums for example and invite visitors in to speak to the class or present a historical environment.

We enrich our curriculum by running to programs. In Cycle B, we run the Children's University. This gives children in Key stage 2 to try new activities such as Fashion Design, Becoming a chef, Italian and Science investigations in partnership with St Gregory's Roman Catholic school. In Cycle A, we run Challenge afternoons in vertical grouping. This year they have taken part in a 'welly walk' in the local environment, a 'Murder mystery' investigation in partnership with St Gregory's, Science enrichment - 'Colour' and Spanish.

Children are also taught life skills such as First Aid and through PSHE, including an annual visit to the 'Life Bus'.
