THE NATIONAL CURRICULUM
We follow the National Curriculum. The curriculum contains the programmes of study and attainment targets for all subjects, at all key stages.
CURRICULUM INTENT AND IMPLEMENTATION
School curriculum information for each year group can be found on our Class pages. If you would like more information about the curriculum please speak to one of the class teachers or contact the school.
The map below provide parents/carers with the opportunity to see what the children are covering in class throughout the three terms. This document is reviewed termly.
SKILL OF THE WEEK
Every Monday afternoon in assembly the children are introduced to our skill of the week. The class teachers remind children about the skill throughout the week and our Learner of the Week is presented with an award in our Friday Celebration assembly with photographic evidence of progress made towards achieving the skill.
PROGRESSION OF SKILLS
The documents below provide parents with information about the skills covered across the school in a range of areas. The documents for all subject areas will be on the website early in the Autumn term.
At Margaret Wix Primary School we look to promote fundamental British values as part of social, moral, spiritual and cultural provision.
We teach Phonics (the way letters make sounds) through the programme Letters and Sounds. Letters and Sounds is a phonics resource published by the Department for Education and Skills in 2007. It aims to build children's speaking and listening skills in their own right as well as to prepare children for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills. It sets out a detailed and systematic programme for teaching phonic skills for children starting by the age of five, with the aim of them becoming fluent readers by age seven.
