We aim for our curriculum to provide rich and challenging experiences that enable all children to learn. We want our children to love learning and enjoy all experiences we offer. English and Maths are taught every day and we teach a curriculum that meets the needs of the new curriculum, as we move from one National Curriculum to another.
We teach reading and writing every day in varied and lively ways, and we promote reading and writing in all subjects.
Reading - We use book ‘bands’ to enable a clear progression in reading through use of a variety of quality reading texts. This is a broad and rich reading scheme incorporating many types of books, for our many types of readers.
Writing - We teach children to write through quality language acquisition and development through spoken language, reading and writing. In addition children are taught spelling, vocabulary, punctuation and grammar.
We teach phonics through the ‘Letters and Sounds’ programme in a multi-sensory and exciting way and this is continued throughout the school as necessary.
Spelling is taught throughout the school and we aim to teach this in a creative way, focussing on spelling rules and conventions throughout the curriculum.
