Throughout Key Stages One and Two children we teach the National Curriculum and this is taught through topics. All children are taught Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar on a daily basis.
We teach phonics through Little Wandle and develop reading skills through specifically targeted age appropriate books. We do not follow one particular reading scheme but ensure children have a range of good quality books.
Maths is taught through the Inspire Maths programme. We use Inspire Maths to inform our Medium Term Plans.
The Science curriculum is based on the Kent Scheme of Work.
The PE Curriculum is based on the scheme ‘Get Set 4 P.E’
Each class in Key Stage 2 is taught French on a weekly basis.
RE is taught using the Kent Agreed Syllabus 2017 -2022. In addition to collective worship, 5% of the school’s annual timetable is dedicated to RE.
During Year 4 pupils look at the following key questions: ‘Why is Jesus inspiring to some people?’, ‘Why are festivals important to religious communities?’ and ‘What can we learn from religions about deciding what is right and wrong?’
Year 4 children have guitar lessons on a weekly basis provided by Kent Music.
