Curriculum

What does your child learn at school each day? Find information about our curriculum subjects here.

 

The school bases its curriculum upon the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum Framework (March 2014) and the National Curriculum in England Framework (July 2013).

Children of all age groups study Mathematics, English, Science, Computing, Design Technology, History, Geography, Religious Education, Music, Art, PSHCE and Physical Education. In addition, KS2 pupils study a Modern Foreign Language.  Cross-curricular thematic work is a common feature across the school in how the curriculum is delivered. Enrichment opportunities are also provided each term.

 

Teachers organise the children in their class in a variety of ways depending on the learning which is taking place.  Suitable challenges are offered to the children to enable them to deepen their learning appropriately.

 

The weekly time spent by the children on the curriculum is as follows:
KS1 22 hours
KS2 23.5 hours

 

Home-Learning School Recommendations:

 

We believe that it is essential that children practise some basic skills regularly at home and we now this makes a difference. As such this will become our core expectation for all children. This will include: daily reading; learning phonics/spellings; learning number bonds and times tables.

The amount of time to be spent on this will increase with the age of the pupils and will be in keeping with current expectations (which originate from Department of Education guidance).

There will then be an additional optional Home-Learning activity in Year R and KS1. In the infants, this will be in the form of a learning grid and will include activities that support developing basic skills e.g. fine and gross motor skills (dot to dot; throwing and catching; telling the time; drawing/colouring; cutting out; language development; basic maths) finding out about something.

KS2

In KS2, we have chosen to trial using technology to support basic skills practise in English, Maths and science. We have bought Century Tech with the support of FOBS. This is a computer programme which uses A.I to adjust the demands of the practise to your child’s level. It also models/shows your child (and you) how to do something and is completely in-line with modern teaching methods. It also provides immediate feedback to your child and you and the teacher can also monitor pupil progess. All children will be provided with a log in.

The recommended time to be spent is as follows:
