Curriculum

 

At St John's school we are following a thematic approach to the curriculum. We can see the benefits for all children in making connections for them between different areas of learning.  At Foundation stage (nursery and reception class) the teachers follow a programme of work planned from the Foundation Stage Curriculum which incorporates six areas of learning:

In KS1 (years 1 and 2 ) and KS2 (years, 3,4,5 and 6) work is planned in five blocks and follows the guidance as laid out in the national curriculum. For each theme the children will have their own learning diary in which the majority of their work around this theme will be recorded.  Key Stage 1 use the Read, Write Inc phonics/reading scheme. 

We feel it is important that children develop a sense of pride in their work and are able to revisit themes so that they can re-evaluate it themselves.

 

As a Church of England school we follow the scheme as provided by the diocese.

 

We recognise that our young people need to grow in both knowledge and understanding of the Christian religion and other world religions. We also aim to develop spirituality in our pupils through recognising the awe and wonder of the world around us.
