Nurture Challenge Inspire


In our Foundation Stage class - Owls - the children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. In Key Stage 1 - Hedgehogs and Squirrels - and in Key Stage 2 - Foxes - the children follow the English National Curriculum.

From September 2014 our school has started to use the Cornerstones Curriculum in all classes. This links to the Early Years Curriculum and to the National Curriculum through cross-curricular imaginative and creative topics. Details of each term's topics are given in class letters at the beginning of each term. These letters can be found on our class pages of the website. Noticeboards outside each classroom also give information about the focus each week.

Topics for the first half of the Spring term 2015 are:

  • Owls - "Why can't I have chocolate for breakfast?"
  • Hedgehogs - "Moon Zoom"
  • Squirrels - "Land Ahoy!"
  • Foxes - "Gods and Mortals"

We place great emphasis on the development of reading, writing and mathematics. We use Phonics Bug to support our phonics teaching. In Owls class the children also benefit from using Jolly Phonics.
