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 and subject. 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 focused around a knowledge and vocabulary based approach. We have taken careful consideration with regards to the structuring of our curriculum to enable children to make links within their learning both across year groups and across subjects. At Fairfield, we work hard to ensure children remember what they are taught in the long term which we hope will greatly enhance children's understanding of the world and make learning new concepts easier and more enjoyable.
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.

We have taken great care to ensure that our curriculum is planned in a manner that allows children to learn, embed and retain new knowledge throughout their time at primary school and therefore these documents outline our approach to the curriculum at Fairfield.
