We teach Maths and English discretely based on the National Curriculum. We use a range of materials to teach Maths including White Rose Maths. The teaching of English is through quality texts. We use Letters and Sounds to teach phonics and teach reading by using a range of books from published reading schemes including Oxford Reading Tree, Rigby Stars and Bug Box . As soon as pupils are ready, we provide 'banded books' to ensure quality levelled reading opportunities. Once pupils reach a competent reading age they move to reading a broad and balanced range of real fiction as their home readers.
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 in the subject links below.
