Thematic Plan

Our curriculum is structured into up to 6 themes per year per class.  The table below shows the areas of learning for each class during this academic year.

Key Stage One

Reception children (who follow the Early Years Foundation Stage framework) and Key Stage One children (children in Years One and Two who follow the National Curriculum) will have the following themes for their work each term.  They are similar to allow classes to work together on joint ventures, for example, trips.

Year One have swimming lessons in the Autumn Term.

Please note that the classes will no longer have class numbers from September 2015.  The School Council have elected to have a local animal theme.  Therefore Class One will be known as the "Dormouse Class" and Class Two will be known as the "Hare Class".  The children will select a different theme next year.

Key Stage Two

Children in Key Stage Two (Years 3, 4 and 5) following a three year rolling programme of topics.  The topic is the same in all KS2 classes to ensure that split year groups have equality of opportunity and to enable classes to work together on joint ventures, such as trips.

Years Three and Four have swimming lessons in the Autumn Term.

Please note that the classes will no longer have class numbers from September 2015.  The School Council have elected to have a local animal theme.  Therefore Class Three will be known as the "Badger Class" and Class Four will be known as the "Roe Deer Class".  The children will select a different theme next year.

We use the Prospectus Curriculum for some of our foundation subjects, Discover RE for RE and we use both Jolly Phonics and Phonics Bug for phonics.  When children are ready, we use Accelerated Reader to ensure that books closely match their reading abilities and that they are challenged. 

Please take a look at our rolling programme of themes in our Learning Journey.  Please note that the first page illustrates the learning in Reception and Key Stage One, the second page shows the themes in KS2.
