Curriculum

Manor Farm Community Infant School Curriculum

We offer an exciting learning journey which aims to bring out the best in each child by delivering Development Matters and the National Curriculum (2014) using an exciting and creative approach.

Foundation Stage

We offer all Foundation Stage children a wide variety of multi-sensory activities which cater for individual learning styles.  Our approach is a balance between play, child initiated and teacher led activities such as reading, writing and maths.

Our nurturing Foundation Stage staff support the well-being and emotional development of all children to secure happiness and enable learning to take place.

Key Stage 1

Key Stage 1 continue to travel along their learning journey following the National Curriculum.  We teach the three core subjects which are English, Maths and Science as well as seven foundation subjects which are Art and Design, History, Geography, Music, PE, Computing and Design Technology.  In addition, the school curriculum also addresses additional subjects of RE, SMSC and P4C.

English is taught following the school scheme of work.  We follow the Nelson Handwriting scheme, the Zoo Spelling scheme and Phonics is taught following Letters and Sounds.  All of these are adapted to provide support and challenge as appropriate. We pride ourselves in our guided reading sessions and children are grouped by ability and given the appropriate book band colour for their level.

Inspire Maths is used to teach Maths and is enhanced by exciting and challenging problem solving activities.

We deliver the remaining curriculum through a topic based approach which is on a three yearly cycle.
