Our Curriculum

We teach the Primary National Curriculum through our thematic curriculum.  Year groups work together to deliver a comprehensive and diverse curriculum.  We have two year rolling programme so that every child explores each topic. Please see our topic cycle below.

 

Reading and phonics

Aims
To teach children aural discrimination and phonemic awareness in order to encourage good spelling.

To encourage children to segment and blend.
 
Objectives

To teach children specific strategies to help them remember high frequency and common exception words.
To ensure that the teaching of phonics is lively, interactive and investigative.
To encourage children to apply their phonic skills in all curriculum areas.
