Curriculum

We teach Maths and Literacy discretely and through cross curricular themes. We use Maths No Problem! to teach Maths. We use Letters and Sounds to teach phonics and reading by using a range of books from published reading schemes (Oxford Reading Tree, Rigby Stars, and Bug Box) which emphasize emerging skills. As soon as pupils are able we provide 'banded books' and real books to encourage a love of reading.
Foundation subjects are taught thematically following the cycles below. We have a two year cycle to ensure that all pupils in our split age classes access appropriate learning. The detail of each subject is mapped according to age band. We have developed bespoke schemes of work for some subjects which are detailed below.
