Literacy lessons are based on the National Curriculum programme of study. Pupils learn writing and reading skills including spelling, grammar, handwriting and punctuation and they have lots of opportunities to apply this in their own writing. Pupils are taught a range of writing genres including fiction and non-fiction and these learnt skills are then applied in other subjects. The handwriting scheme used in school is PenPals.
Maths teaching is based on the Singapore method of teaching and the scheme used in school to support this is called Maths No Problem. The Singapore method is a highly practical and visual system, so all pupils are able to understand different Mathematical ideas and concepts. The teaching of times tables and number bonds is also taught as part of the Maths curriculum to ensure pupils have secure number fluency.
The RE curriculum follows the Leicester City Agreed RE Syllabus. This allows all pupils to develop understanding of other beliefs and cultures which may be different to their own. The curriculum includes visits to places of worship and finding out about religious artefacts, books and customs.
All pupils in Key Stage 2 have French lessons from our specialist French teach, Madame Honsall. In the lessons the pupils learn the language and develop their vocabulary through a range of interactive games and songs.
