The learning that we plan for the children is linked to units of learning and different activities are identified which provide a cross-curricular approach. Some of our work is delivered through more specific lessons, such as phonics, handwriting and number skills.
We aim to personalise every child’s learning to ensure they are the best that they can be. There will be times when your child will be taught as part of a class, in a small group and as an individual. For other sessions, children are grouped so that work can be targeted to meet their particular needs.
We plan teaching and learning very carefully in order to make sure that the children experience an appropriate broad and balanced curriculum. We give priority to developing children’s communication skills through our language work and to ensuring that children develop basic skills in Mathematics.
The Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum is for all nursery and reception-aged children. The curriculum has a strong emphasis on learning through play.
In accordance with the National Curriculum the formal subject areas for children in Years 1 and 2 are: English, Mathematics, Science, Information and Communications Technology, Design and Technology, History, Geography, Music, Art & Design, Physical Education and Personal, Social Health Education and Citizenship. Religious Education is also part of our curriculum.
You will receive a written report every year telling you about your child’s progress. It will be concerned with the all round development of your child. You will be able to discuss this report with us at a Consultation meeting.
