We provide a rich, relevant and meaningful curriculum for all of our children during their years at Abbots Farm Infant School. Our curriculum matches the needs, interest and enthusiasms of our children and helps them to engage well in their learning. The activities which the children undertake in school are planned with care to ensure at all times that the activity flows directly from a clear basic skills learning objective.
The children have a significant input into the development of the curriculum at Abbots Farm Infant School. We do not stick rigidly to any scheme of work, strategy or any externally imposed curriculum but we adapt our own curriculum to suit the children’s needs. At all times teachers ask themselves about the value, engagement and enjoyment level of the curriculum they are offering their children make changes if appropriate.
Teachers consider very carefully what real, meaningful and exciting resources, stimuli and learning hooks can be used to support each half term’s theme. We ensure that the curriculum in each year group is clearly routed in experiential learning. This may include a school visit or a visitor.
Cross curricular links are maximised and each half term theme is used directly as a vehicle to teach writing skills, to develop reading and where appropriate to support the teaching of mathematics.
To support our teaching of phonics we use 'Letters and Sounds'.
We do not follow a specific reading scheme. We use a colour coded book band system with a range of reading books from different schemes such as Bug Club, Project X, Big Cat, Rigby, All Aboard and Jumpstart.
