At Oakhill Primary School we teach to the National Curriculum; a copy of this can be found in the documents below. We are using the fantastic Learning Challenge Curriculum scheme as this fits perfectly with our focus on using high quality texts to enhance learning and encourage a wider range of writing.
Science, Geography, History and Religious Education topics are based on a question, which creates enquiry based learning, engages the children and deepens thinking. For example: Science Y3 – How far can you throw your shadow? The topics start with a ‘Wow’, which is something exciting and interesting about the topic – a trip, DVD, visitor etc. Other foundation subjects are taught through the topic, i.e. art, design technology and music. Computing, French, PE and RE are taught as discrete subjects (although we are using a separate Learning Challenge curriculum scheme in RE.)
In Key Stage 1 we follow 'Letters and Sounds' to teach our children phonics and our main reading scheme is the Oxford Reading Tree scheme.
