Curriculum Overview

At St. Joseph’s Catholic Primary School we believe that children learn best when lessons are stimulating, exciting and engaging. We deliver the National Curriculum through creative themes.

First hand experiences are at the heart of the learning and we use many different resources to provide challenging and dynamic lessons. Children are curious and motivated to acquire skills which will equip them for life.

The colourful, stimulating classroom environment reflects all of the themes and inspires children to learn, enjoy, challenge and achieve.

The phonics scheme used in Key Stage 1 is ‘Letters and Sounds.’ We also use ‘Bug Club’ and ‘Book band’s reading schemes to ensure that the children have a breadth to thier learning. Further information about each subject and the curriculum can be found each tab, as well as the fortnightly newsletter.

We teach Religious Education through the God Matters Strategy which provides a spring board for learning and each theme is linked to the liturgical calendar.

Through ‘Faith, Hope and Love’ we can succeed.

We are currently reviewing our whole school curriculum for 2017-18
