CURRICULUM English year 1 to year 6
The content of our English originates from the National Curriculum (NC) 2014. This structure is provided to us by the Department for Education. The whole document can be found at: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/425601/PRIMARY_national_curriculum.pdf
As we have mixed age classes children meet the content of each subject in cycles, except for phonic knowledge and maths. We also assess children against knowledge end points in each unit in their cycle, as well as end points for their year group. Staff are supported in their delivery of this content with commercial lesson planning and resources from Twinkl, PE Hub, White Rose Maths and Hamilton Trust. The NC only provides a framework and examples of Risley School’s curriculum plans for English are set out below. Again, you can find out more about our curriculum design and content by contacting the headteacher through our school office contact e-mail address.
