At Oakhill Primary School, National Curriculum objectives are taught through our 'Oakhill Alumno Curriculum', which is an exciting curriculum providing children with the opportunity to learn independently and collaboratively, sharing their learning with others through a variety of mediums including drama, text, art and film.
All of our topics have a ‘Wow’ experience - something exciting and interesting about the topic: a trip, part of a film, a visitor or role-play for example and each topic has a reflection task providing children with an opportunity to share what they have learnt throughout the topic. Where possible 'Now Press Play' experiences are embedded into our planning. Now Press Play provides the children with the opportunity to learn through imagination and movement, taking on the role of the main character in an audible adventure.
Our Alumno topics are History, Geography or Science based, with other foundation subjects, such as Art, Design Technology and Music, incorporated. Computing, French, PE and RE are taught as discrete subjects.
Objectives for each year group and the term in which they are taught can be found in the documents below, along with the National Curriculum and the whole school overview of our Oakhill Alumno Curriculum.
In Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 we follow 'Letters and Sounds' to teach phonics. Home reading books are taken from our main reading scheme which is the Oxford Reading Tree scheme. In KS2 children continue with our Oxford Reading Tree scheme and move onto the Collins Big Cat reading scheme, which offers children the opportunity to read a wide variety of text types including: classic novels (such as The Railway Children and Black Beauty), Shakespeare, biographies and playscripts. In addition to their reading scheme book, children in Upper Key Stage 2 will choose a 'free reading' book to read at home.
