Children should mostly develop the 3 prime areas first. These are:
- Communication and language;
- Physical development; and
- Personal, social and emotional development.
These prime areas are those most essential for your child's healthy development and future learning. As children grow, the prime areas will help them to develop skills in 4 specific areas. These are:
- Understanding the world; and
- Expressive arts and design.
Children are introduced to phonics through the use of 'jolly phonics', letters and sounds and the North Yorkshire spelling scheme. The school has a mixture of reading schemes but predominantly Oxford Reading Tree then moving onto free choice from our school library. Click here for letters and sounds resources and activities.
There are three "core" subjects: English, Mathematics and Science. Computing is taught to all children and integrated into most subjects.
Staff ensure that a broad and balanced curriculum is taught, which includes the foundation subjects: Art & Design, Modern Foreign Languages (French), Design Technology, Geography, History, Computing, Music, PE and PSHCE (Personal, Social, Health & Citizenship Education).
Each term we provide for parents a curriculum information sheet which gives an outline of the work the children will be covering during the term and a list of vocabulary which can help your child.
