Introduction

Our Curriculum at Oakwood 2018-2019

The Foundation Stage is taught in our Early Years unit. This is organised into a reception class and a split reception and year 1 class.

In Key Stage 1 there are 3 classes, one year 1 class, one split year 1 and 2 class and one year 2 class. The planning themes run on a two yearly cycle which ensures that topics are not repeated by children.

In Key Stage 2, the planning cycle is split into 2 phase ranges due to the split year groups classes. The planning cycle is organised into year 3 & 4 and year 5 & 6. The planning themes run on a two yearly cycle which ensures that topics are not repeated by children.

The sections on the Curriculum Maps outline the organisation of the subject areas across the academic year. The Learning Journey for each term will give more detail about what your child is learning about and suggested ways that you can support them at home. 

The curriculum section outlines information for the other subject areas including the phonics approach, the reading schemes and the handwriting style used at Oakwood as well as useful links and resources for other areas in mathematics and science.
