Our Curriculum

 

All about the Fairfield curriculum!

Should you require additional curriculum details, please contact your child's teacher or the school office.

The documents below outline the main topics covered in each year group. We hope these plans provide you with topic and content information so you can continue to support your child’s learning outside of the classroom.

We have ensured our curriculum places literacy and numeracy at the forefront although as always, we are ensuring that all subjects have their rightful place within the curriculum. We have ensured that the curriculum we offer your child is balanced, exciting and enriched and fully equips your child with knowledge, skills, tolerance and understanding of the 21st century world.

Our curriculum is based over a two-year topic approach with a two-year cycle for years 1 and 2, years 3 and 4 and years 5 and 6. Maths and Literacy follow the new National Curriculum. Half-termly maths objectives are shown below.

In respect of particular literacy-based schemes, in the Foundation Stage and Key Stage One, 'Letters and Sounds' is used for the daily phonics sessions. A document outlining our phonics in the Foundation Stage is also included below.  It is an interactive phonics programme with linked planning and assessment.  Our Key Stage One reading books are book banded and the children cover a variety of genres in each band, including non - fiction.
