At Waberthwaite C of E School, we are proud of the rich and deep creative curriculum we offer through a broad range of experiences and activities.
Our aim is to motivate, enhance and support learning by making learning meaningful and enjoyable . We often do this by joining different elements of the National Curriculum together and exploiting the wealth of opportunity that the local area has to offer.
Many activities are planned to meet a number of the National Curriculum strand in a creative way and as we teach in mixed age classes due to smaller class sizes, this can often mean a thematic approach to teaching is taken to meet the different needs and curriculum content required. Lessons can also be taught on a rolling programme on a year-by-year basis, to ensure all children complete all curriculum content.
Have a look on the individual class pages to see some examples our broad and balanced curriculum in each mixed-age class!
In Key Stage 1 phonics is taught using the a mix of Letter and Sounds scheme, for a programme of study and activity suggestions, with some use of Jolly Phonics for a multi-sensory approach.
We use Accelerated Reader throughout Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 to provide progression in both reading levels for fluency and to ensure reading for meaning and comprehension.
