Other Curriculum Areas
Some areas of the curriculum are taught as separate subjects, alongside our topics:
Phonics and Reading
Phonics - We use Letters and Sounds supported by Phonics Play to teach Phonics in EYFS, KS1 and KS2 where necessary. When children first start learning their sounds we use the 'Jolly Phonics' scheme.
Reading - Children are encouraged to develop a love of reading and books and have free choice of books from the school library areas once per week. This may be a book that they can read themselves or one that they need read to them. When children are learning to read, we use the Oxford Reading Tree series featuring characters such as Biff, Chip, Kipper and Floppy. These books will be changed regularly and we endeavour to hear children read as frequently as possible. Once children have completed the Oxford Reading Scheme, they move onto the Collins Big Cat Scheme.
Throughout the year we hold a number of curriculum themed days to immerse the children in a particular subject area. We hope to promote a love for learning within that curriculum themed area and to give children the opportunity to explore which areas they may be developing a particular love for. Recent and future Curriculum Days are listed below:
Maths - 18th January 2018
Music - 2nd February 2018
English - 1st March 2018
History - 26th April 2018
Spanish - 7th June 2018
If you require more detailed information about the curriculum that your child is following, please speak to their class teacher. We hold half-termly open door evenings where you can see first-hand what the children have been learning and look at the work that they have produced.
