At Halstead Community Primary School, our Early Years team plan and teach using the following document:

Years 1 to 6 follow the National Curriculum; an in-depth view of which can be found via this link:


Throughout Early Years and Key Stage 1, we use Read, Write, Inc. to deliver our phonics.


We are currently reworking our curriculum read for the start of the next academic year.  At present, we are still using the two year cycles listed below.

Saplings (Y1/2):  Year A   Year B

Oak (Y3/4):         Years A and B

Willow (Y5/6):    Years A and B

As our Early Years class is NOT a split year group, it does not use a two year cycle.  Their current plan can be found here.
