Learning and Teaching at Infants

Mornings have a strong focus on teaching English and Mathematics. We follow the ‘Letters and Sounds’ literacy programme in Key Stage 1, spending time on phonics, weekly spellings, grammar and writing skills. In addition children have individual and group reading sessions to help develop their ability to read for meaning. We use various Maths schemes as our core, which we supplement with weekly times tables challenges, mental maths and problem solving.

The curriculum allows the pupils to develop their thinking skills and abilities across a broad range of subjects and topics including Science, History, Geography, French, ICT, Art, Drama, Music, RE, Personal and Social Education, and Physical Education.

Each term parents are provided with a curriculum overview outlining what the focus for the term will be, including the topics being covered and homework routines.
