Our Curriculum


Below is a link to our curriculum map which shows the great range of topics we study across the year group including ‘Anglo-Saxons and Vikings, Flight in Farnborough, Volcanoes/Democratic of Congo.  We enjoy learning in a creative way and try to incorporate drama across the curriculum.  In English we use a range of different genres and text styles to stimulate and generate our own writing. We follow Hampshire County Council planning units for Spelling and Grammar. In maths we continue to build on our number skills and accuracy in written calculations.  We study fractions, decimals and percentages as well as shape and data.
