The Big Picture
Our aim is to ensure that all pupils are provided with an engaging and challenging curriculum suitable to their needs. We strive to ensure that there is both breadth and rigour to pupils' learning.
To make sure that our learning is fresh and exciting every year, for our mixed classes, we have a two year cycle in place. Lots of our learning is based around a termly theme in the classes from Reception to Year 4. These themes are different each term. Whilst the themed approach allows to explore ideas in depth from different angles, not all subjects fit neatly into each theme so, some will be covered separately. This is often the case with Mathematics and Languages, for example.
In Upper Key Stage 2, we move away from a themed approach to delivering subjects as discrete lessons. This is in order to prepare pupils for life in secondary school.
You can find out more about your child's current learning on the class pages or by logging onto Tapestry for Reception Class parents.

The school does not use a single reading scheme. Instead, we have created our own, colour coded, scheme using books from a range of schemes. This provides a wider variety of texts from which children can choose. We also use a variety of reading support materials including Dancing Bears and Rapid Reader as best suits the needs of the individual.
