Early Years Foundation Stage
The Early Years curriculum meets the requirements set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. The planning focuses on the Early Learning Goals and on developing children’s key skills and experiences as set out in this document. Productive play underpins the delivery of all the Early Years Foundation Stage teaching and learning. Children have opportunities to play indoors and outdoors, engaging in a balance of child initiated and adult led play based activities for learning.
Key Stage One and Two
English and Maths are taught from the National Curriculum objectives (2016 updates), these provide a long term plan which is robust, progressive and comprehensive, ensuring all the children receive a broad and balanced learning experience.
For the remainder of the core and foundation subjects a long term plan has been created for each year group covering National Curriculum objectives and learning outcomes specific to the expected level for the age of the children. These objectives are taught within termly themes and the school takes the opportunity to apply Maths and English skills and knowledge. Please see our separate document for more detailed information about the curriculum.
The curriculum in our school is designed to provide our children with the skills and knowledge they need in order to grow into confident and useful individuals.
If you would like additional information on the curriculum please approach your child’s class teacher or speak to the team in the office.
The following subjects are planned and taught in our school using a balance of whole class, group and individual methods. Schemes of work have been developed from Government strategies and every effort is made to make them interesting and interactive. We use a variety of visual (things to look at), auditory (things to listen to) and kinaesthetic (things to touch) approaches.
