Our Curriculum Design

Curriculum design

Phonics

Children learn phonics using the published scheme, ‘Read, Write, Inc.’ which is a systematic approach to teaching phonological awareness.

Educational Experiences

The class teachers organise educational experiences for the children which are relevant to the topic they are learning about. These include:

  • Residential visits to St Briavel’s Castle in Monmouthshire
  • Visits to local places of interest, including Montacute House
  • Welcoming visitors to the school to share their areas of expertise
  • Linking with children in a school in America to share experiences and cultural differences
