We believe in a broad balanced curriculum based on a thematic approach providing our children with meaningful experiences. Alongside the basic skills of reading, writing and mathematics, there are opportunities for creative interests in Art, Craftwork, Music, PE and Drama and the development of a general interest in Science and the environment. Much of our work is taught through themes, which are backed up by Educational Visits to places of interest and Museums. Visits to the school by experts in their particular field are also encouraged. Parents, helpers are welcome to bring the real world into the classroom. We believe that our children should have the opportunity to experience the curriculum through real experiences. The skills and attitudes which are developed in this way promote a joy in learning that we hope will continue through for life.
In KS1 the School uses Read, Write, Inc Phonics Scheme. Should you require any further information please see Mrs.Lambert, Head of School.
Each year we will arrange a residential visit with Years 5 & 6 for a week or weekend. On alternate years we hope to take the children to Kingswood and YHA Boggle Hole in Whitby. This encourages independence and working together as a team as well as an opportunity to carry out field studies in the chosen topic for that term.
