Welcome to our Curriculum . . .

Curriculum Information Autumn 2016

For a child to have the best chance of success in school we need to work in partnership with parents. Children are learning all the time, not just in school, so we all have a role to play.

It is important for parents to understand what it is that children are learning and how they can help.  To support you in this we are providing two information leaflets:





Termly Cross-curricular Topic

This year each class will have a main topic every term.  We hope this will help children:

We hope this information is helpful and useful to you. Please let us know what you think about this new way of working as the year develops.



Reading, Writing and Maths

This leaflet lists the expectations for what a child in a particular year group should know, understand and be able to do in the core areas of reading, writing and maths.

This knowledge and these skills are then used and developed across the rest of the curriculum.

Many of these things can be reinforced and supported at home. Some ideas are given on the leaflet but if you would like any more information please do not hesitate to ask your child’s class teacher.

Gallery

Each week we look at a piece of art linked to the values theme. The art work is displayed in each classroom and on the screen in the hall as the children come in for our times of collective worship. Often ideas cannot be completely understood or best explained with words alone. Art and music are used to help explore our values and other more abstract concepts.

These are the pieces of art being used this term, supporting our Values Focus theme.
