The children’s learning experiences are carefully planned, personalised and structured to reflect their stages of development, their interests and specific learning needs.

Topics follow a similar theme across all year so that children can build upon and share their learning across the school, connecting their ideas. All planning is based upon a range of rich text to stimulate and excite children’s learning, with talk and reading at the very heart of what we do!

In Early Years we follow Development Matters to guide our planning,  and in Years 1 and 2 we follow the National Curriculum. See links below. 


We value opportunities for talk and all staff have received training in  the importance of good questioning.  Studies show that developing spoken language and giving children opportuntities to think critically has postive impacts in all areas of learning . To read more about this please see the Progression in  Language document at the bottom of this page. 



Below you will find the topics and themes that we will be covering in class for this term.  The subjects follow the different areas of the National Curriculum. For more information please feel free to talk to the class teacher.
