We aim to give our children a broad and balanced curriculum. Classes have termly topics which relate to an area of the humanities curriculum. These topics aim to provide a stimulating ad engaging basis for cross curricular links. We don't try to make links where they are not possible and in may cases subjects are studied in isolation. Whilst we believe it is good to encourage children to make links between learning it is important for children to cope with different areas of learning simultaeneosly as this prepares them for later learning.

 

 

 

We place a strong emphasis on visual literacy and the use of high quality text, film and applications to stimulate writing. These starting points often relate to the termly topic.  Staff are encouraged to find original and less well known materials which offer genuine challenge and new perspectives on the world. A good example of this is the use of Japanese animation used in the midddle year groups.

Phonics

 

We adopted 'Read Write Inc' as our primary phonics teaching material some years ago. Children are introduced to this in reception and we aim for all children to have achieved a good level by the time they leave KS1. The very few children who continue to struggle with phonics continue on this program or variations of it into KS2. Older children who access additional needs support are matched to a range of interventions.

Reading

 

We use a range of reading schemes such as Rigby and Oxford Reading tree. As the children move into KS2 they are supported by a programme of 'recommended reads' that has been developed 'in house'. Class teachers have identified and read a range of high quality books suitable for different year groups. Each book has a set of questions generated by the class teacher. Children are set targets of how many books they should aim to read depending upon age and ability. Once they have read a book they answer the 'quiz' that goes with the book. Although we encourage to read books of their own choice, this system encourages chidren to read more challenging books and ensures they complete whole books. All readers are supported by reward systems that are tailored to the child's age, ranging from bookmark and pencil rewards for the younger children through to visits to a bookshop to chose a book for older children. Staff are constantly reviewing and refreshing how to make reading a highly valued part of school life.

 

 

 

PE

 

PE is supported by a partnership with JB sports coaching. Coaches take lessons, mentor staff and deliver extra curricular activities. Children take part in the local small schools tournament for Netball and Football along with the 'Federation' cross country at Mrs Mary King's School. Although the school doesnt have a hall on site we have the use of the village hall that was funded under a join use arrangement. The hall has all the facilities of a school hall and allows us to deliver a full gymnastics curriculum. Children go swimming at Sleaford pool, we aim to allow all year groups access to this during the year. To view JB sport website click here

 

 

Residential Trip

 

Upper KS2 children have the chance to go on our residential trip to Norfolk every other year.
