At our school we provide a broad and balanced curriculum that is accessible for all children. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework for reception children and the Primary National Curriculum for England for key stage 1 and 2.
Literacy and maths are taught as discrete subject areas so that children develop the skills and knowledge they will need in school and in the wider world. Our children are given many opportunities to use and apply these skills across the curriculum in teacher led and child initiated activities. We use Letters & Sounds to provide a foundation for the teaching of phonics. All Key Stage 1 classes work using the same topic framework every term. These topics are carefully planned, children are a part of this planning, to ensure good coverage of science and all foundation subjects.
In the Foundation Stage, the Early Years curriculum is planned for using the same topic as key stage 1 every term. Careful planning ensures the children have access to all seven areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum both indoors and outside.
