Our Curriculum

We have a lively, vibrant and evolving curriculum which is designed to meet the needs of all of our children. They enjoy being challenged and motivated by interesting topics such as ‘Coasts and Rivers’, ‘The Anglo Saxons’ and ‘ Our Local Area’. All of our topics are inspired by famous children’s books and involve all subjects. At the end of a topic parents / carers are invited in to celebrate the learning journey.

Foundation subjects: RE, Computing, Technology, History, Geography, Music, PE, Art and Design, PSHE and Citizenship.

Please find below the curriculum overview for class 1 and 2

In Religious Education the school also follows guidelines provided by the government. Christianity forms 70% of this curriculum although we also teach children about other world faiths and encourage tolerance and understanding of others. Any parent has the right to withdraw their child from Religious Education by stating that they do not wish their child to receive Religious Education instruction from the school.

Phonics
All of our children learn phonics through a tried and tested programme.
In Reception the children learn the 44 main sounds heard in the English language as well as learning tricky words. They use these sounds to read and write simple words and sentences.
In Year 1 the children revisit the 44 main sounds and learn different ways to spell these. The children also continue to learn many more tricky words and develop a more adventurous vocabulary.
Year 2 consists mainly of learning to spell and read more complex words and write extended sentences.
In KS2 we use a programme called ‘Support for Spelling’ which continues to develop the children’s spelling and phonic skills.

Our School Day
Our school day is busy and exciting and the children are always involved in a range of well designed learning opportunities. Literacy and Maths are taught every day combined with fun and engaging topic work, time to work outside and times to be active and play. Parents are encouraged to help with activities. Our children work hard and this is clear in the standards they achieve.

International Links
We have a well developed link with the Yusuf Makemba School in Tanzania. We learn about the differences and similarities between their school and ours, develop pen-pals and share resources and ideas. There are some pictures of these events in our gallery.

Residential Courses and Educational Visits
Children’s experience of life is extended by taking them out of school on day visits. These begin at an early age and are closely linked to the work of the class. Older children experience residential visits (in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6). Popular visits include the South Devon Railway, Totnes Rare Breeds Farm and Castle Drogo.
