The teaching of basic skills is very important to us. We teach daily phonics, literacy and maths lessons across key stage one and two. We use the 'Letters and Sounds' scheme to teach phonics and supplement this with 'Jolly Phonics' resources. To support the teaching of reading we use Oxford Reading Tree predominantly but draw upon a wider range of books, such as Project X, Floppy's Phonics and Read, Write, Inc. to engage and support all learners. In 2020 we organised our texts into phonic phases to ensure that the children are able to rehearse sounds taught. Pupils are assessed on their phonic knowledge and this information is used to set the level of texts the children read at home. In Key Stage Two or when Phase 6 phonics have been completed this reverts back to colour banding.
We use the Maths Mastery approach to teaching maths using Maths Hub and White Rose planning and resources.
We offer a broad curriculum through six topics per year for each year group. We use the Chris Quigley Essentials Curriculum which is a progressive curriculum focused on achieving milestones by the end of Year 2,4 and 6.
