Our curriculum is organised by age range as follows: Foundation stage [reception] Key stage 1 [Y1&2] Lower Key stage 2 [Y3&4] and Upper Key stage 2 [Y5&6]. We teach the National Curriculum through a central topic in each age group. This curriculum works on a two-year cycle so that children do not repeat the same topic. English skills are normally taught through the topic whilst maths is usually delivered as a discrete subject. Phonics at Foundation stage and Key stage 1 is taught in ability groups using 'letters and sounds' materials, together with a synthetic phonics programme 'Sounds-Write'. At Key stage 2, phonics is one of a range of strategies for developing spelling and decoding skills. Follow the links below for details of the areas covered within each theme. Should you have any further queries about our curriculum, please contact your child's class teacher or Mr. Palmen, who is our Curriculum Manager.
