The Oaklands Curriculum
Our curriculum is designed carefully to ensure that our children develop their knowledge and skills to a high level and then have the opportunities to apply them in exciting ways so that they can be mastered. High levels of confidence and independence in reading, writing and maths are essential to be able to learn and succeed in their later life. A large variety of other learning opportunities, including trips and visits and after school clubs, allow our children to extend their experience so they can develop their own lifetime aspirations for success. Our detailed curriculum map plans these opportunities out and supports our staffs’ curriculum knowledge so we can provide a variety of high quality learning experiences for our children. Ms Kirsty Packham (Deputy Headteacher) manages the curriculum and is available should you have any questions or queries.
Read Write Inc
We use Read Write Inc to help us deliver exciting phonics sessions with children from Reception upwards. The children work in pairs and small groups to learn new sounds and to learn to read and write words and sentences.
