Our Curriculum

Our Curriculum

The new National Curriculum is here! The pictures show our inspiring curriculum in action. (The main photo shows Y5 enjoying their first 'Space Night' here with PhD Astrophysics students from Warwick University.) You can find the detail in our topic plans below for  the  curriculum through our teaching of the foundation subjects. Please note that timings are sometimes subject to change during the year. 

The computing curriculum is flourishing and Y5 have begun to find out how to communicate their learning by creating their own websites. You can see one of their first attempts here. Year 4 have also been busy debugging their turtle programs and drawing regular repeated shapes which can be saved as procedures. Take a look here!

Our EYFS begin to read through the Oxford Reading Tree 'Biff and Chip'reading scheme and phonics is taught in regular short daily sessions throughout KS1.

Don't miss our new 'Parents' guide to maths calculations' booklet. Even if you couldn't come to  the 'Parents' maths evening' or the 'Meet the teacher' drop ins, take a look at our new document below to find out exactly how we teach addition, subtraction, multiplication and division as your child progresses through the school.

For more information about the curriculum in each year group , please look on the class pages, speak with your child's class teachers at parents' evening or ask for an appointment to discuss how you can best support your child's learning.  Various parents' meetings throughout the year are also held, for example on: how we teach maths, phonics in EYFS, the new SEN code and e-safety. See newsletters for details.

Our curriculum is planned on a two year cycle so when A and B are mentioned it refers to the current year.  2016/17 is 'A', 2017/18 is 'B'.
