Hempnall Curriculum Vision
Our curriculum develops cultural capital and knowledge, skills and understanding for later life.
It goes beyond the National curriculum with an enriching range of opportunities and experiences, to enable our children to be the best they can be.
New skills and experiences, and the learning environment help to nurture resilience, curiosity and creativity.
The curriculum is enhanced by our learning powers: co-operation, independence, participation, concentration, imagination and perseverance.
We ensure coverage and progression across all subject areas; developing depth of knowledge and understanding and opportunities for children to build on what they know and embed their knowledge into long term memory.
In order to broaden the children’s experiences, visits, visitors and other opportunities are carefully planned to support and enhance learning.
As part of planning our curriculum we ensure prior knowledge is re-visited and built upon to deepen understanding.
Our curriculum places our children at the cent arend allows each child to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding across all subjects.
We strive to ensure that our children’s attainment in all subjects is in line with or above age-related expectations.
We intend that all our children will be fully prepared for their next stage of education; ready to contribute positively to society as a whole.
We aim to provide children with a vocabulary rich environment, high quality texts and inspiring learning opportunities, which will help them to:
· Gain a life-long enjoyment of reading and books.
· Read accurately, fluently and with understanding;
· Apply a knowledge of structured synthetic phonics in order to decode unfamiliar words with increasing accuracy and speed;
· Be able to read with expression, clarity and confidence;
· Develop a good linguistic knowledge of vocabulary and grammar;
· Read and respond to a wide range of different types of texts;
· Develop a deeper level of emotional intelligence and empathy;
· Read fluently, and with confidence, in any subject.
Through the delivery of our reading curriculum we ensure a consistent and robust teaching and learning of early reading and phonics in FS and KS1, so that pupils are able to read with increased speed and fluency and access the wider curriculum.
We follow Read Write Inc to teach children phonics and they read story books that are matched to their ability. The books allow for children to read fluenty as their phonic knowledge develops. All pupils have opportunities to develop their reading skills daily, and are encouraged to read at home with an adult.
We provide a text rich environment, in order to encourage a positive culture of reading throughout all classes and promote reading for pleasure. Children enjoy listening to challenging texts through Storytime. Through high quality teaching and learning experiences we will develop children’s skills and competence so that they are fluent readers who can read to learn. Whole class shared reading is used throughout the school to enable all children to share high quality texts and develop skills in reading comprehension and fluency. Reading skills are continually developed through the wider curriculum.
All pupils will be able to read with accuracy, speed, confidence, fluency and understanding, ready to access the secondary school curriculum. All pupils will make at least good progress from their starting points. Pupils will develop a life-long enjoyment of reading and books.
