This is where you can see the current Curriculum Plans for each year group and find out what your child will be learning at the moment:
We teach the national curriculum to all children based on the latest programmes of study, this is the new Curriculum 2014. This is by directly involving the children in planning their learning. We ensure it is an interesting, relevant and balanced curriculum. We give them:
- opportunities for speaking and listening;
- an emphasis on questioning skills;
- a wide range of stimulating resources;
- a range of teaching styles;
- visitors from a wide range of backgrounds and occupations;
- visits to museums and galleries to support their learning;
- focus curriculum weeks e.g. poetry, music, art;
- a mix of formal and practical activities.
We get satisfaction from providing an enriched, relevant curriculum for all children. We are proud of our children’s independence and learning skills. For more information about our curriculum and ways you can support at home, please contact your child’s teacher or click on the link below to view the national curriculum in full.
Curriculum Skills Documents
These show the skills and knowledge that our children are expected to have gained by the end of Year 2.
At Cunningham Hill Infant School we know that children learn at different paces and some children will need additional support to acquire the key skills and knowledge stated on the Curriculum Skills documents. Other children may meet these objectives before the end of the Key Stage and they will be challenged to use their skills and knowledge in different contexts.
Our Curriculum Skills documents are linked to the National Curriculum. Teachers write blogs which include suggestions for how parents can support at home and information about songs, stories, concepts and key learning in the classroom.
We take into consideration the interests of the children and teachers and make as many links across the curriculum as possible, e.g. teaching maths skills for handling data through a science lesson or writing diaries as a character from history.
We always welcome your feedback so if there is anything we can do to make the information contained here easier to access and/or understand please let us know. Please contact the Head teacher if you need any further information regarding the Curriculum Skills documents.
Early Years Outcomes
Foundation Stage Early Learning Goals
Phonics and Reading
At Cunningham Hill Infant School, children learn to read with confidence and enjoyment through a structured teaching approach which includes the use of phonics, whole word recognition and comprehension and discussion.
We follow the Read Write Inc. literacy programme, for 3 to 7 year-olds learning to read and write. Although reading is taught using synethic phonics, the programme is so much more than that. It covers all of the new National Curriculum requirements for language and literacy.
Reading is an important part of the curriculum and is approached in many different ways throughout the school day: guided reading, shared reading and class story. We have a well stocked library which is used by all the children, both formally and informally. Our children are supported to become fluent readers who understand what they have read. They are also encouraged to become critical readers who can express opinions and preferences. All children will be heard read on a daily basis in their Read Write Inc. groups. Reading at home is also exceptionally valuable and we would like you to continue to support in this way by reading everyday with your child.
If you are able to volunteer some time to come in to school to hear children read, please contact the school office and we can organise times and classes.
