We follow an inquiry-based curriculum.
Further detailed subject information for each year group is supplied regularly to parents throughout the year and is available on request from class teachers.
In maths, we base our teaching on a system called Mathematics Mastery (which incorporates the best of international practice, inspired by teaching in Shanghai and Singapore).
Children are encouraged to develop and explain their thinking through the daily talk task.
We have a big focus on oracy across all subjects and use P4C (Philosophy for Children) and debating to develop children’s speaking and listening skills.
KS1 Reading and Phonics
Children have daily phonics teaching, using the DfE’s Letter and Sounds Phonics programme.
We use Oxford Reading Tree and Collins Big Cat reading schemes alongside a wide selection of other books in order to teach children to read.
