Our Curriculum

We teach the Primary National Curriculum through our thematic curriculum.  Each year group works to deliver a comprehensive and diverse curriculum. Each year group uses an overarching topic to deliver the key objectives in each subject.  Please see our topic cycle and class overviews below.


Reading and phonics

At Marton we strive to ensure all children become fluent readers by the end of Key Stage One. We teach phonics daily throughout KS1 and follow the Letters and Sounds scheme of work.
To teach children aural discrimination and phonemic awareness in order to encourage good spelling.
To encourage repetition and consolidation, so that spelling becomes automatic.
To encourage children to segment and blend.
To learn to read and write all 44 graphemes in the English language.
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.
