Curriculum Plans

Please click on a link below to find out what your child's class will be learning about in each subject area this year. 

The curriculum is carefully planned to ensure coverage of all the objectives for each year group during their time in each mixed-age class.

Please also see our curriculum progression page for more information on the key skills for each year group.

In September 2020 we created a separate class for Reception pupils, which gave the opportunity for further development of the Long Term Plans for Reception and Class 1 (Year 1&2). This will be reviewed through joint working in EYFS and KS1 before finalising the 2021-2022 plans. 

Due to current COVID restrictions, some areas of the LTPs have been adapted: Computing and PE have been adapted as we can't use the facilities in Calder High at present. We have ensured core computing skills and language are focused on and have purchased new Chromebooks, Beebots and resources to support this. PE  lessons have been adapted and we have some new inter and intra school challenges as part of HX7 sports and Calderdale School Games to develop core skills and give the opportunity for competitive sport whilst organised competitions are paused. We have all our new PE equipment we purchased just before lockdown in 2020 too, such as our gymnastics benches and mats, boxercise and skipping.

To further enhance our curriculum during ongoing restrictions, we have used Zoom and Teams for live music lessons, drama productions and whole-school events. We have had visitors to our playground such as the North Pole Elves, Science technicians and sports coaches. For mental health and wellbeing support following lockdown we have a new PSHE curriculum and have employed Level 3 Forest School Leaders to develop our Forest School for all classes every week both on site and at our allotments in Redacre.
