At Ospringe Primary School we believe that by developing a curriculum that is exciting and full of wonder, we can inspire our pupils and develop a love for learning and thirst for knowledge. Our curriculum is based on our school ethos of Nuture, Grow, Succeed, which by following the Chris Quigley approach to learning, we feel we guide and reinforce knowledge for our pupils to successfully navigate through the curriculum.
You can find out more about our curriculum by looking at our Subject Overviews and Long Term Plans. We also add photographs and work to our Class Pages that show how our Curriculum is put into practice.
In English we follow a Talk for Writing approach to learning. From year 2 upwards children learn story maps and focus on settings, characters and language. These elements are then used to inform the children's own writing.
The children in Keys Stage One learn to read through the Read Write Inc programme. They divide into groups everyday and learn phonics at an appropriate level.
In Maths we follow a mastery approach, using Power Maths and White Rose material. The children have a daily Maths and Maths Fluency lesson. They learn their Times Tables and number relationship skills through a range of different approaches including Times Table Rockstars.
We have adopted the use of the Christopher Winter Project (CWP) scheme of work and resources to provide a structured approach to Sex & Relationship Education (SRE) and Drug & Alcohol Education (D&A Ed.) across the school from Reception to Year 6.
These materials are endorsed by Kent Healthy Schools and the Health Promotion Service.
Each term a dedicated lesson will be provided for each year group in Sex and Relationship Education and another in Drug & Alcohol Education.
These subjects form part of our overall Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education (PSHE) curriculum which is based on the recommendations of the PSHE Society.
