Curriculum

What does your child learn at school each day? Find information about our curriculum subjects here.

You will be emailed each half term with a colurful cross curricular grid that explains what your child will be learning in each topic area. They are also available to view on your child's class page.

 

An over view of each year group's topics can be viewed below. Please note that it is two year rolling cylce for Years 1 and 2, Years 3 and and Years 5 and 6.

These topics are largely History, Science or Geography based and we are very excited about the learning opportunities these topics will provide. As usual we will try to include a visit or visitors to enhance these experiences.

 

There are also changes to Literacy and maths which will lead to some policy and practice changes - for example to methods used in maths, to handwriting, spelling and expectations for your child's year group. We will keep you informed as these are developed and may hold workshops and information events to help you become more familair with them.
