Curriculum

In order to become successful and fulfilled citizens in the future, our children will need to develop the attitudes and dispositions that enable them both to contribute to and benefit from the society they will enter as young adults in ten to fifteen years’ time.

Our curriculum therefore teaches them not just information and subject skills but also, and perhaps more importantly the dispositions and attitudes they need to become lifelong learners.

This is why we systematically teach the children to

  • Become resilient.
  • Become independent.
  • Collaborate effectively with others.
  • Evaluate information.
  • Be creative.

Our Spring medium term plan overview can be found here:

Read. Write, Inc. Spelling

Spellings are taught using the Read. Write. Inc spelling scheme. The programme is effective in teaching spelling because we:

  • Teach bite-sized lessons that build knowledge cumulatively
  • Make spelling fun - aliens introduce spelling rules on an exciting online spelling planet
  • Give children a range of interesting activities that enhance their understanding
  • Provide practice tests to record children’s progress
  • Easily and quickly fill the gaps in children’s spelling knowledge.

For ideas on how to support children with spelling, follow the link below.
