THE NATIONAL CURRICULUM
At Broadwood Primary School we teach the National Curriculum.
We aim to offer all children a broad and balanced curriculum, which promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of the children in our care. We will also prepare pupils for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
The National Curriculum statutory requirements are mapped through core subjects for each National Curriculum year group. The curriculum highlights the statutory areas that the children must be taught in both core and non-core subjects. The core subjects comprise of English, Mathematics and Science. Each core subject has specific year group and phase group expectations that children must meet.
Below are some links to the Year 1 and 2 English and Maths National Curriulum overviews. We would like to offer our thanks to Gaywood Primary School for allowing us to adopt and adapt their national curriculum documents.
In Maths we use a range of schemes to support the curriculum. We use elements of the Collins and Scholastic schemes to acheive the mathematics objectives, as well as a range of other mathematics resources. We also use a range of I.C.T. programmes such as Education City, Mathsphere and Primary Games to enhance the curriculum we offer. We also try to include maths opportunities in other curriculum areas each week and these are monitored by the Maths Co-ordinator.
In English lessons we also use schemes to support the curriculum. We again use elements of the Collins scheme to acheive the Speaking and Listening, Reading and Writing objectives. In K.S.1 discreet phonics lessons are taught every day. We use the Oxford Reading Tree scheme in K.S.1, but this is also supported by a range of other texts which are available to the children. Children also have a 'Writing for All' session each week where they have an opportunity to write independently, having been inspired by a range of stimulii each week.
We recently adopted a new handwriting scheme called 'Penpals'. which is now implemented right across our school.

At Broadwood, Science is taught through topics, linked to our Creative Curriculum. In K.S.1. we have half termly topics. The science curriculum is split into Year 1 and Year 2 key skills objectives, which link to each topic.
