There is also access to several other learning areas: The Learning Garden, the Rainbow Room and the Sunshine Garden.  The playground is frequently used for learning as well as at playtimes, the Village Hall provides a large indoor space for games in winter and other indoor activities while the Village Hall field is used for games, teaching and play in the summer.

The Curriculum

The overall statement about the curriculum in our school is covered on the Classroom page with more details on the curriculum Fact Sheet.  Each term the newsletter gives information about the curriculum the children will be studying.


Early Years Education

As providers of Early Years education we aim to provide a strong foundation upon which children’s confidence, knowledge and learning will continue to grow. Click to see our full policy on Early Years learning and the Early Years Fact Sheet.

Phonics and early reading

Infants making traditional toys

In our school early reading is taught using synthetic phonics alongside guided, whole class and individual reading. Pupils are taught the phonemes (sounds), how to blend the sounds for reading and how to segment the sounds in order to write words. We ensure that phonics is taught through fun active daily sessions and practised at a pace that is suitable for individuals and groups of children using the letters and sounds approach. Children are also taught how to read high frequency words which do not completely follow the phonic rules. We use a wide range of books for reading including Oxford Reading Tree, Ginn and Rigby Star reading schemes.
