Curriculum Plans and Objectives
Teachers use a two-year, rolling Long Term Plan as a basis for their half termly and daily plans. Within these plans, which are often developed as a key stage team, can be found the content each topic will cover, the objectives and possible teaching activities as well as the skills the children will focus on during their work.
These plans also allow teachers time to consider either a ‘Stunning Starter’ or a ‘Fabulous Finish’ to engage the children or to help them demonstrate what they have learnt. Possibilities for trips, visitors and speakers are also included, as well as links which can be made between topic work and English and Maths.
Below you will find the Long Term Plan topic themes for Year One and Year Two of the rolling programme:

Teachers use the Curriculum Objectives from the 2014 National Curriculum as the starting point for their planning and teaching. These objectives can be found below:
Teachers produce a variety of documents to record their planning, monitor their objective coverage and keep parents informed of the learning within their class. Some of these can be found below. They are also published termly on each class page. Teachers also use 'in-house' objective spreadsheets to monitor coverage over the two year period and ensure that there are no gaps in knowledge for the children.
