School Curriculum Overview

We have developed our curriculum for our children. It is based on real experiences, visits and visitors where possible with hands on experiences to motivate and engage the children in their learning. In general we teach literacy and numeracy discretely but these are often linked to the children’s other learning. Learning Experiences begin with a hook, e.g. an imaginary flight to Greece, letter asking the children to design something specific, and there is an end product to finish the learning this varies from a presentation to parents to a flower arranging display - a way of the children sharing their learning with other people.

Our children have phonics or spelling teaching daily. Our phonics is based on 'Letters and Sounds' but has been adapted but school staff for our children and to fit with the new curriculum. Our spelling teaching is based on the National Curriculum for each year group, see plans below. Grammar is taught through our Talk for Writing (English) lessons, guided reading, spelling and handwriting sessions, see below for our school progression. Reading is taught through phonics, English lessons and guided reading with some individual reading especially for younger children. The school does not use one specific reading scheme, preferring to have a variety of books which are colour banded according to their degree of difficulty. The children are able to choose their own books within their colour band with guidance from teachers and parents when needed.

Below are the overview of our curriculum, the details of each term's learning and other information about our curriculum.
