Curriculum Overview

Our Curriculum

The aim of our topic based curriculum is to make learning more exciting, engaging, challenging and relevant to the children in our school, whilst meeting the requirements of the new National Curriculum.  The information on these pages give more detail about how we organise a broad and balanced curriculum and ensure continuity and progression. Class pages give you more specific information about the learning that is taking place in each class.

Teaching of Phonics is based on Letters and Sounds,  Religious Education follows the Archdiocese of Liverpool resource, Come and See, and handwriting is taught following the Penpals handwriting scheme. Reading, Writing and Maths do not follow a particular scheme of work.  Guided Reading texts are primarily Oxford Reading Tree and Bug Club texts, although we are ensuring breadth of reading by supplementing these with a range of other texts. Pearson's Grammar and Spelling Bug resources are used to support teaching and learning in these areas and teaching and learning in Maths is based on White Rose materials.

We place great value on working in partnership with parents to support children's learning.  There are an increasing range of opportunities for parents to engage with the learning that goes on in school through homework, information sent home, parents evening, parent workshops, open afternoons and other opportunities to come into school.
