We have mixed Year Group classes. The Giant Class - has Reception ,Trendle Class has Year 1 and Year 2 class (both classes have 30 children maximum intake) and Abbey Class has Year 3 and 4 - (approximately 30 children intake).
We are now teaching from the revised New National Curriculum 2014. http://www.primarycurriculum.me.uk/
We have a thematic approach to the curriculum where by we try to link all the learning to umbrella topics. Please see the latest Topic Webs under Class Pages.
In addition to this curriculum approach we have discrete Phonic & Spelling teaching sessions in all classes, usually four times a week. We currently use the Read, Write Inc Phonics programme to support our teaching of phonics in Reception and Year 1. The children then move onto the Read, Write Inc Spelling Programme in Years 2, 3 and 4. We also have guided reading and independent reading activities each day.
The children also have regular, short, timetabled sessions focusing on handwriting and grammar from Year 1 up to Year 4.
We have a strong focus on learning dispositions and how to be a successful learner. We are always trying to become more self-aware, thinking about how to succeed, challenge ourselves and improve.
Our values are strong and driven by our faith. All our rewards are linked to how we behave according to our values and how we are developing as learners.
Please find below the topic overviews, topic webs and medium term planning that show the specified topics and areas of learning in each subject for each class for each half term. If you would like to find out more please come into school and speak to our Head Teacher or one of the class teachers.
Please note due to having classes of two year groups we teach a two-year rolling programme: Year A and Year B. For the academic year 2018 - 2019 we are teaching our Year A curriculum.
A positive, purposeful and enthusiastic atmosphere
