Our curriculum has been designed to meet the needs of the children at Laughton. It is based on the National Curriculum and the interests of our children, equipping them with skills they will need as future citizens. They learn about the world around them at a local and global scale and our topics are designed to excite children and give them the chance to apply key skills that they have been taught. Wherever possible we use 'real life' learning opportunities, visits, visitors and the outdoor environment to enrich children's learning.
Please note that these curriculum maps are subject to change. Flexibility is built into them to take into account the needs and interests of the different cohorts of children and any events which may provide rich learning opportunities. Decisions about the curriculum are based on maintaining fresh, exciting activities whilst ensuring high quality teaching and learning and achievement for all of our pupils. Where we make adaptations we ensure coverage of the National Curriculum, as this is our statutory duty.
Please contact the school if you would like to discuss our curriculum in detail.
How We Teach Reading and Phonics
We use the Oxford Reading Tree supplemented by other books to teach reading. Your child will begin to bring a reading book home in their book bag at some point in Class 1 and this will continue throughout school.
We use Read Write Inc as a co-ordinated phonics resource throughout the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1. This has been very successful in ensuring high standards in phonics and reading. The children then access a structured spelling course as they move through school. Read Write Inc is supplemented by other programmes such as Letters and Sounds, Jolly Phonics and Reading Rescue, where appropriate, particularly to meet the needs of children with SEND.
You are always welcome to discuss the curriculum or any aspect of your child's learning in school. Please speak to a member of staff.
