A new National Curriculum was introduced to schools in September 2014. English, Maths and Science make up the 'core' subjects in the primary school curriculum and the majority of learning time is spent on these subjects.
In addition to the 'core' subjects are the 'foundation' subjects of: History, Geography, Computing, Art & Design, Design and Technology, Foreign Languages (statutory from Year 3 onwards), Music and Physical Education.
R.E. and PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) are also taught in Year 1.
During Year 1, all pupils take part in a statutory Phonics Screening Check and parents are invited into school to discuss this with their child's teacher.
At Linthorpe Community Primary School, we adopt an engaging and creative way of ensuring that all children receive a high quality primary curriculum.
The context for learning:
Throughout the year, children work on a variety of stimulating and engaging Learning Projects through which the National Curriculum subjects, R.E and PSHE are taught. If it is not possible to link a subject or skill to a Learning Project in a meaningful way, then these are taught separately.
