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.
Our English curriculum is taught through a text based approach using the Literacy Tree, supplemented with the school’s own planning.
Our spelling is taught using No-Nonsense Spelling and Sir Linkalot and Scholastic handwriting is used in key stage 1.
Our maths curriuculum is taught through a maths mastery approach using White Rose planning.
For our Foundation subjects and some aspects of our English curriculum, we use two year cycles with a topic based curriculum, ProspectUs. See the class pages for their curriculum maps.
Saplings – years 1 and 2
Oak – years 3 and 4
Willow – years 5 and 6
As our Early Years class is NOT a split year group, it does not use a two year cycle. See the class page for the curriculum plans.
