Our Curriculum

We follow the National Curriculum at Trenode Primary Academy. The latest subject 'Programmes of Study' are all available at this link on https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/national-curriculum

Below are our curriculum plan documents showing what is taught/covered in each subject across the classes. English is  linked to the termly topic and we use high quality texts as models to promote progression e.g. the use of 'Carrie's War' in a Second World War topic. Following a 'Storytelling' or 'Talk for Writing' approach, Children in often learn part of these texts by heart to give them a framework to improve their writing. They then innovate on these texts.

Spelling, grammar and punctuation are taught and then practiced in different written contexts, where possible linking with the genre of writing being taught. these links can be seen in the 'Learning Journeys' created to follow throughout a unit.

Phonics is taught in EYFS and Key Stage 1 to teach pupils how to read and spell and this reading is practiced individually or in groups during guided reading sessions. Letters and Sounds and Phonics Play are used in teaching this.

Since the beginning of 2017 we have used the White Rose Hub and AET planning for mathematics. This places greater emphasis on spending more time teaching ensuring that key mathematical themes are embedded e.g. place value in Key Stage 1. It also encourages learners to explore different areas of mathematics in greater depth and requires them to explain their reasoning and combine lots of different maths learning to solve problems.

Science is taught where possible, integrated into the topic, although some concepts areas are taught discretely.
The Bridge Multi-Academy Trust are developing an Enquiry-Based Learning approach to the curriculum. Our 'curriculum ladders of progression' are attached below.
