The Early Years Foundation Stage
In the Foundation Stage the children learn through the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum where the focus is on learning through play. At Stilton C of E Primary Academy we use the key principles of the Primary knowledge curriculum to enhance the learning experiences of the children. Through the Foundation Stage, aspects of skills and knowledge from the National Curriculum using the PKC are introduced in order to provide progression for the children into Year 1.
The National Curriculum
The National Curriculum sets out what children should know, understand and do in each year group in the following subjects: English, Maths, Science, Computing, Design and Technology, History, Geography, Music, Art and Design, Physical Education, Personal, Social and Health Education and RSE. We follow a local Cambridgeshire syllabus to teach Religious Education.
Our Knowledge Rich Curriculum.
Our Curriculum is a well sequenced knowledge rich curriculum which is taught to be remembered. It follows a progression model where learning is carefully sequenced to build on prior knowledge and understanding. All pupils in all classes are entitled to the same rich curriculum and provision is scaffolded for those that need it. Lessons are taught subject by subject with an overarching half termly question to develop curiosity.
We use the Primary Knowledge Curriculum ( PKC) as a resource to support our teaching .
