”Gain a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 90:1

Our School Curriculum

Our curriculum is an engaging and creative curriculum that provides many cross-curricular opportunities for our pupils.  Every term each class reads a book that their topics and subjects are based around.  This is to enable the children to immerse themselves within the book and produce high quality work within the topic.  An educational visit takes place at the beginning of a new term to launch the topic and allows the children to have first hand experiences.  For example in Year 5 in the summer term Moondial is the class book and a visit to Belton House takes place which is where the story is set.    

In Foundation Stage there is an emphasis on phonics.  The main scheme used is Phonics Play.  Reading schemes used include Oxford University Press, Sails, Jelly and Bean and Big Cat Phonics.

In Key Stage One Ginn and Red Rocket reading schemes are used.
