Woolston Infant School Statement of Intent
We provide a curriculum that immerses pupils in learning that is memorable, engaging and meaningful. The curriculum enables pupils to acquire and develop the knowledge, skills and vocabulary they need to be successful learners. Our curriculum will enable the children to develop, apply and embed their skills across a range of subjects, building on what they already know and can do. The curriculum supports the spiritual, social, moral and cultural development of all pupils through our School Values, encompassing British Values.
The curriculum is taught though a topic based approach(see year group tabs). Within this each subject has a progressive skills map from EYFS to year 2. Please see individual subject tabs.
The PDFs below contain the whole school curriculum map and the 'memorable moments' we undertake to enhance the children's learning experiences.
Within any one day, teachers ensure that there is balance between English, Maths and other National Curriculum subjects. Year R children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum which feeds into National Curriculum in Years 1& 2.The curriculum is supported by very careful planning to meet the needs of all children. There is a balance between whole class teaching, group work, (both supported and independent) and working with individuals.
Our aim is to provide the highest standards of teaching and learning for every child. This enables all children to achieve their full potential in aspects of school life. Currently, each reception class has a full time teacher and a Learning Support Assistant to support your child’s learning and social needs. In years 1 and 2 each class is supported by a Learning Support Assistant every morning and some afternoons.
