We plan exciting learning opportunities for our youngest children both indoors and outdoors. Learning is often child led and through play. Sometimes learning is more adult focussed and everybody works together e.g. in learning a song.
Phonics, reading, writing and maths are generally taught in small groups with children of similar ability working together.
We greatly value the good relationships we have with parents and carers. It is our aim for children to settle in and feel secure as soon as possible.
Key Stage 1 (KS1) (Year 1 and 2 children)
The curriculum in Key Stage 1 balances activity-based, cross-curricular and more adult guided learning.
At the start of each term children will bring home a plan charting the topics that will be taught in each area of the curriculum and how these integrate.
The core subjects are Mathematics, English (Literacy) and Science. Additionally Music, ICT, History, Geography, Design and Technology, Art and Design, Religious Education Personal Social and Health Education are taught.
Key Stage 2 (KS2) (Years 3,4,5 and 6 children)
Teaching of all KS1 subjects continues in Key Stage 2 with the addition of Modern Languages (French)
Again at the start of each term children will bring home a plan charting the topics that will be taught in each area of the curriculum and how these integrate.
