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 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 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.
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- Enchanted Kingdoms
Spring term- This is Your Life
Summer term- Wired Connections
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.
