What does your child learn at school each day?


We follow the National Curriculum for KS1 and KS2. Subjects taught are:

English, Maths, Science, Computing, Art and Design, Design Technology, History, Geography, PSHE, French, Music, RE and PE.


We follow the White Rose Maths Scheme of Learning (mixed age) for maths.


We follow the Norfolk Agreed Syllabus for RE.


We teach exciting and engaging lessons through whole school topics. Each class will learn about a different element or feature of the same whole school topic. In this way we share experiences such as visitors, trips and shared resources. We are able to work together to ask and answer questions; to challenge and explore. The children enjoy sharing their learning and experiences with each other and often with their parents. We believe that children learn best when they are excited and motivated to learn and therefore plan topics that inspire the children and fill our lessons with practical and investigative tasks. We aim to enrich the learning with trips, visitors and experiences that will embed children's understanding. 


In the Foundation Stage, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage guidelines and join in with the whole school topics where appropriate. We use Letters and Sounds to teach phonics and the early development of reading in Einstein and Nightingale classes.


For more information, please see individual class pages under the 'Children' menu of our website.

Please do come and ask your child's class teacher if you have any questions about the curriculum.
