Throughout the year work is planned by teachers to cover all curriculum subjects in order to
give as broad a base as possible. Some subjects follow a two year rolling programme to
avoid duplicat ion and throughout the year a lot of interest ing and excit ing work is produced
by the children in following these programmes of study.
The core subjects of numeracy and literacy are taught on a daily basis throughout the school
Science, religious educat ion, ICT, PE, and music are taught weekly. Some foundat ion
subjects, such as geography, history, art , design and technology may be ‘blocked’ into half
term units of study.
According to statutory requirements, children are formally tested (SATs) towards the end of
Year 6 and formally assessed towards the end of Year 2 — for English, mathemat ics and
science. We also test children in Years 3, 4 and 5 during the summer term, although this is
not a legal requirement .
