We believe that children should be prepared for life in the wider community and that we now live in a world where access to different countries is far easier than ever before. We believe it is very important that our children are literate and numerate.
We have revised our curriculum to be in line with the new expectations of the National Curriculum 2014. The content covered in Years 1 and 2 is attached to this page. We have included the curriculum content for Year 3, so that you can see what children will go on to do in the Juniors.
Throughout our school we follow Read Write Inc for our phonics curriculum. Our reading scheme starts with the Oxford Reading Tree and as the children become more proficient we allow them to read age appropriate books.
Our Equalities curriculum runs in parallel with our 'main' curriculum and covers topics such as race, religion, gender discrimination, disabilities etc in order to prepare our children for the world in which they live. We are very lucky because we have many families with links to other countries through their families and we celebrate other cultures and heritage within school, using the family connections and knowledge as a resource for our children's learning.
We firmly believe in the importance of play for children and the role it has in building skills such as self confidence, independence, imagination, co-operation and collaborative working, and our development of our outdoor area is on-going. We are increasingly using our outdoor provision to support learning in our school.
