Here at Templars we strive to help every child to succeed. We have been working very hard to create a curriculum that will engage all children. As The National Curriculum became compulsory in September 2014. We teach this new curriculum through a themed approach and more details of these themes can be found on each year group webpage (Curriculum Map).
Foundation Stage- Both in Nursery and Reception we use the Development Matters publication. This helps us to then assess the children at the end of the year using the Early Years Framework 2012.
Mathematics teaches children how to make sense of the world around them through developing their confidence and competence in number work, measure, geometry, statistics and most importantly the using and applying of these skills.
At Templars Primary School we provide a maths curriculum that reflects the varying needs and learning styles of pupils. It is our aim to cover all areas in the New National Curriculum for Mathematics 2014, enabling pupils to make progress relevant to them.
Pupils will become secure with their subject knowledge, gain confidence to become independent, autonomous learners through a varied diet of activities.
In turn, pupils leaving Templars Primary School will have a solid grasp of number and mathematical concepts which will equip them with the necessary skills to help support the challenges they individually face throughout their lives.
Phonics- Here at Templars we are using the Read,Write Inc scheme to support children’s learning starting in Reception. Once the children have completed this scheme and apply their knowledge at a good level we use Language and Literacy to continue to develop their skills, vocabulary and understanding.
For more information on the different schemes or the content of the curriculum please browse the links below or, see your child’s class teacher. Each year group has it's own page that has lots of information about topics the children are learning, photo's and extra homework. There is also a link to the new statutory National Curriculum 2014.
