Curriculum Statement May 2021

Alongside the National Curriculum, we use the following resources to support mixed aged planning, teaching and learning:

-for Maths, we use the White Rose Maths year group resources

-for Relationships, Personal, Social Health and Citizenship Education, we use the Gloucestershire Pink Curriculum

-for Religious Education, we follow the Gloucestershire agreed syllabus for RE

-for Modern Foreign Languages we use La Jolie Ronde Spanish

Phonics: From their first day in Reception, children begin Phase Two of our own phonics scheme throughout daily twenty minute sessions. Our scheme is based on ‘Letters and Sounds’. In addition, ‘Read, Write, Inc’ ditties support letter formation in writing.

Reading Scheme: Our school uses the ‘Bug Club’ Reading Scheme to support Early Reading. After Phase 5, we use the ‘Oxford Reading Tree’ and ‘Tree Tops’ reading schemes. For catch-up readers, we use the ‘Phonics Books’ scheme.

For all other subjects, we plan using the Chris Quigley Essentials Curriculum. This is a progressive, skills based curriculum. We use the ‘Milestones’ to ensure children are taught the right skills at the right time. We link these milestones back to the National Curriculum .
