The Curriculum the children are taught at St. Saviour’s is wide and varied. We follow the requirements of the National Curriculum and children are usually taught Literacy and Numeracy in the morning with Foundation subjects (RE, Science, ICT, Humanities, PE, etc.) taught in the afternoon.
Phonics and Reading: We follow the Letters and Sounds Phonics programme across the school. In EYFS, Jolly Phonics is used to support this programme. At St. Saviour’s we use books from a selection of reading schemes. However, it is the colour banding from the Rigby Reading Scheme that is used to assess the children’s reading.
Within the topics that the children study with their class teacher, they will experience day trips, visiting experts as well as more usual lessons. We feel that it is vital for children to enjoy their lessons and have fun doing so – we do all that we are required plus add the magic ingredient of “Above and Beyond”.
Each class has a topic web which is sent home every term as well as being available on the website. If you have any questions about how you can help your child with their learning, please do not hesitate to talk to their class teacher, Miss. Lorimer or Ms. Woodford.
The Creative Arts loom large at St. Saviour’s and we aim to provide every child with the opportunity to experience quality lessons and opportunities with specialist teachers in Art, PE, Music, Dance and Drama. These wonderful teachers are sponsored by the PTA and we are very grateful to them for raising the money to fund these posts.
