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 have names each year.  The School Council have eelect the theme.   During induction activities the class then agrees what they want to be called.   Whilst documents use numbers, the children use class names.
