Children follow the National Curriculum for all areas of learning. Subjects are taught through topics which ensure children can link aspects of their learning.
Children are taught phonics using Letters and Sounds. Phonics is taught in daily discreet lessons. The skills children learn are then applied in every aspect of the curriculum. Reading is taught through guided reading sessions with the class teacher and through individual reading.
At the end of Year one pupils are assessed using the Phonics Screening Test.
At the end of Year 2 pupils are teacher assessed using SATS.
Children enjoy a wide and diverse curriculum with rich enrichment opportunities along the way.sycamore-class-autumn-term-rainforest
