Our school curriculum offers our pupils an exciting and wide variety of topics in order to develop their skills and knowledge. Our experienced team of staff ensure childrens lessons are fun, engaging and memorable.
In our Reception Class, the children learn within the Foundation Stage Curriculum. Children develop quickly in their early years and we aim to do all we can for our pupils to have the very best start to their school life. We recognise that every child is unique and as such we provide a caring environment where they are encouraged to flourish through playful, challenging opportunities.
We believe Literacy is a fundamental life skill and at Worth Primary we develop the children’s abilities to listen, speak, read and write for a range of purposes, using language to learn and communicate ideas, views and feelings. Children have opportunities to express themselves creatively and imaginatively, as they become enthusiastic and critical readers of stories, poetry and drama, as well as non-fiction and media texts. Our pupils develop an understanding of how language works by looking at its patterns, structures and origins. They use their knowledge, skills and understanding in speaking and writing across a range of situations.
Reading is a key area of focus in school. In Early Years and our KS1 classroom the children are taught phonics daily using Read Write Inc sound cards in order to develop their skills to decode words. We encourage our pupils to read a wide variety of literature and have decided not to adopt a specific reading scheme.
Our ‘Reading Rangers’ ensure children are reading regularly and widely across a wide range of texts. Reading Ranger Awards are celebrated with the whole school to emphasise the importance of reading each and every day.
Our aim in Maths is to provide all children with full access to the 2014 National Curriculum enabling our pupils to achieve confidence and competence (mastery) in mathematics. The majority of pupils progress through the content at the same pace and differentiation is achieved through support, intervention and deeper thinking tasks.
At Worth Primary School we believe that all pupils deserve a fully rounded curriculum to become confident, independent lifelong learners. Science has a crucial role in this and is considered a vital part of each pupil’s experience in school. All pupils have the opportunity to participate in activities across the disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics during their time in school in line with the 2014 National Curriculum.
