Learning at The Willows
We follow the Penpals handwriting scheme from nursery up to year 2. Children enjoy reading through a range of reading schemes including Pm, ORT, Project x, Rigby star and Collins big cat. Books are chosen with the children and include both fiction and non-fiction. We follow the DFE “letters and sounds” phonics teaching programme which gives us flexibility to plan according to children's needs and interests. Our teachers plan their own maths teaching without schemes and use their strong subject knowledge to successfully teach the key skills in this area. Please see the documents below for more information about each subject area of our curriculum.
