Want to know what your child learns at school each day?
Check out the class pages to keep up to date with what's happening in your child's class in the weeks ahead.
We are currently adapting and updating our whole school curriculum - so please watch this space for more information on this in the future.
Our Long Term Plans do not include our Numeracy links. Below you will find yearly overviews per year group linked to the Abacus scheme that we follow in school. Due to our mixed aged classes, these are not followed rigidly, instead are adapted to meet the needs of our children in response to teaching, learning and assessments.
English in EYFS and Year 1 is taught through the Read, Write Inc. scheme. This supports the children to develop their phonics, reading and writing. With this being embedded in Willow Class the aim is to make more fluent readers with a good understanding of what they have read.
English lessons taught from Year 2 onwards are planned from a range of high quality texts, film clips, or current affairs to engage children in their learning, covering a broad range of genres and text-types. These lessons are planned to ensure the children continue to build up their skills in specific text types and promote the children writing for a variety of purposes. The children then show off their skill development when they apply their learning to longer pieces of work in their topic lessons.
Spelling is taught through the Read, Write Inc. scheme in Year 1 and is followed on by the Read, Write Spell scheme that is taught daily from Year 2 to Year 6. The teaching of grammar and punctuation is also taught within English lessons and supported with Special Focus lessons as part of the Read, Write Spell scheme, which is closely matched to the National Curriculum.
Willow Class also closely follow the Read, Write, Inc Phonics scheme for their Phonics, Reading and Writing. This then progresses into Read, Write, Spell which is completed in all year groups from Year 2 to Year 6.
