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. Play underpins the delivery of all the Early Years Foundation Stage and children have opportunities to play indoors and outdoors, engaging in a balance of child initiated and adult led play based activities.

 

Key Stage One and Two

English and Maths are taught from the Primary Frameworks, these a 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 NC objectives and learning outcomes specific to the expected level for the age of the children. To read the long term plans, please click here.

Whole School Themes

Every year the school chooses 3 main themes. Each theme will run for a term and all classes from Nursery to Year 6 will follow the theme. The aim of the collective theme is to provide a central focus for the school enabling children and families to discuss their learning at home by sharing common topical language and experience

Our themes for this year are

Autumn term- Heroes and Villains

Spring term- Above and beyond

Summer term- Let’s Celebrate

In addition to these themes we have special weeks or days to broaden our children’s knowledge and learning, for example, enterprise week, National Poetry Day, Anti Bullying Week and Problem Solving Day.  Please visit our gallery and events page to see more details of these events.
