Below you will find information regarding our approach to the curriculum, our curriculum overviews, and the Phonics & Reading Schemes that we use.
Parents can find out more about our curriculum at Parents Evenings, via newsletters and home school diaries, and at open afternoons or parent assemblies.
If you would like any further information please speak to your child’s teacher at the end of the school day.
At Templars, children benefit from daily english and maths lessons which ensures the key skills are taught rigorously.
In EYFS the work is planned in themed units, designed to appeal to children's interests, and allow learning to be 'joined up' and make sense to our learners.
In KS1 and KS2 non-core subjects are taught using a skills-based approach called Creative Links. In the first half term KS2 children are taught and practise skills in history, geography, Art, DT, music and group work, in the second half of the term the children then work on a project of their choice using the skills they have acquired in the previous half term, combining literacy and maths skills as well as science and outdoor learning opportunities.
In KS1 children focus on two subject areas each half term with a group project at the end of the half term.
In addition to this, all year groups have memorable experiences planned for, including visits, experience days and practical learning both inside and outside the classroom.
Assessment opportunities are utilised so we know if the children have made progress and adapt our teaching as necessary. All learning is differentiated to meet the needs of the individual children in our care.
At Templars Academy the phonics scheme we follow is: Phonics Bug
