Queenswood Primary School

Learning and Curriculum

Queesnwood Primary School has an exciting curriculum based on Chris Quigley's cross curricular themes.  Whilst literacy and maths are taught in discrete lessons  (although linked to the class' current topic), the other National Curriculum subjects are taught in blocks of time rather than in separate weekly lessons. 

Most of our classes are mixed aged groups but curriculum planning takes account of the expectations for each year group.

We use Jigsaw as the foundation of our PHSE/British Values curriculum.

At the beginning of September 2016, we adopted Read, Write Inc by Ruth Miskin as our primary phonics programme.  This provides us with a structured, pacey programme for our Early Years Foundation Stage and year 1 children.  We also use the programme to provide intervention support for those children identified as needing it.  Read, Write Inc also produces 'Fresh Start', an intervention programme for our older children, we have also adopted.  You can find more information at the link below.
