Our first Concert - December 2017
Many of our children have been having individual and group lessons to learn to play an instrument. On Tuesday 5th December 2017 the children each performed to a huge audience. We were blown away by their musical talent!
Health week June 2017
Our children and staff enjoyed a week of health activities. We were lucky to have parents come in to talk about making healthy choices, teach circus skills and yoga. During the week children focussed on exercise, dental health, general health and mental health.
POLICE VISIT MAY 2017
On Friday the local police visited for a fun afternoon. The children got to speak to the police officers and sit in the car and van. Some children even got to turn on the sirens.
Science week 2017
As part of Science week the children in our school explored 'Changes'. On the Monday, all classes took part in a carousel day where they worked with other teachers to carry out investigations. During the week the children then investigated different changes with their class. Take a look at all of the fun things we did!
MUSIC WITH PENNY
The children have been enjoying doing music every week with Penny.
Alongside the UK National Curriculum for Early Years Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 and 2 we also teach the Learn Together Ethical Education curriculum. We teach a modern foreign language in all year groups including Reception.
Our aim is to teach a rich, broad and balanced curriculum built around the Learn Together curriculum and the National Curriculum. We believe children learn best through experiencing a varied and diverse range of activities and subjects. At all times we are aware of opportunities in the full curriculum to develop literacy and maths skills. English and maths are taught every day both across the curriculum and in discrete lessons. We believe that outdoor learning is very important and we use the playground and neighbouring parks and gardens to develop this. The ethics and the environment strand of the Learn Together Curriculum further develops this aspect.
See below for the more detail on the curriculum covered in Maths, Science and English and the other subjects in each year from Reception to Year 6. In phonics we use Letters and Sounds and Jolly Phonics along with other resources.
This outlines the main areas of learning in each year group. We teach each child according to their needs. For example some children may be learning maths or English at a higher level than that of their year group or at a lower level. These overviews are therefore only a guide to progression through the subjects. Those working above Year 6 levels will be taught from the KS3 curriculum and those below from the earlier stages of the Early Years curriculum. Please speak to us if you have any queries.
