Curriculum Coverage

Language + Questioning = Communication 


These three words sit at the heart of our curriculum.

Children need to have:

  • a good grasp of language
  • be able to question and reason

We achieve this by using the principles of Philosophy for Children to become: critical, creative, caring and collaborative thinkers; this will allow our children to become good communicators which is an essential life skill.

Autumn Term - Reading Stimulus

This term we are using a range of books to help us develop our reading and writing skills in English. We will use the books:

We have started to read ' Whatever Next' by Jill Murphy. Baby Bear finds a rocket, makes friends with an owl and has a picnic on the moon! 

Inspired by our reading
