Our curriculum

Each child has a statutory entitlement to the National Curriculum. The curriculum for each year group can be found on the Year group class page and every half term, the class newsletter details what will be taught in each area of the curriculum, these newsletters can also be found on each class page.

Each subject area has at least one member of staff who is specifically responsible for implementing the National Curriculum and for ensuring continuity and progression in the subject throughout the school.

Most subjects are taught as part of a cross curricular theme so that our children acquire a wide range of skills and experiences. For example, in Maths, children might be learning about drawing graphs using data collected as part of a Science lesson where they carried out experiments on temperature changes. This ensures that the curriculum is more relevant to the children and enables them to make connections between subjects and learning experiences. 

Music Festival

Each year we take part in the Wilmslow Music Festival, this year our Key Stage 2 children performed with distinction well done children! 

Phonics teaching

In Reception at Lindow we use “Jollyphonics”, in Key Stage 1 we use the LCP phonics system, based on a “Letters and Sounds” paper published by the DfES. More details can be found here.

For parents / carers who would like to help their children this video shows how to say the sounds properly and the attached sheet "Learning to read through Phonics" published by the DfE, gives further information.
