Our Creative Curriculum

At Fullwood Primary we follow a creative and cross-curricular approach where learning is taught through ‘journeys’.  Each of our learning journeys contains:

A Stunning Starter – starting the topic with awe, wonder and excitement!

A Marvellous Middle – this might be an educational visit or visitor or a special event

A Fabulous Finish – a celebration event to which parents and carers are often invited

Our Summer term 2021 learning journeys are:

Phase Group EYFS (Nursery & Reception) Key Stage 1 (Years 1 & 2) Lower Key Stage 2 (Years 3 & 4) Upper Key Stage 2 (Years 5 & 6)
Autumn 2020 Learning Journey Mario at the Olympics Out of Eggs & to the Olympics
I love where I live Journey to the Olympics

Other Commitments in our curriculum

Due to school closures we will have an increased focus on children's mental health and physical well being which will be embedded within our learning journeys.

All children have 5 hours of English and Mathematics each week. 

All children have at least one guided reading session a week in which there is a focus on developing decoding and segmenting skills, as well as improving reading comprehension

All children have a minimum of 2 hours physical activity each week.

Religious Education and Personal, Social Health Education are taught throughout the curriculum, where needed, it forms the focus of circle times.


Phonics (the sounds that letters make)

We follow the ‘Letters and Sounds’ approach to teaching phonics to our children. Guidance from the Department for Education can be found by following the link below  

Please see our google sites and class pages for more information regarding phonics guidance and resources. 

Children will bring home a reading book, appropriate to their stage of reading development, each day to read with an adult at home.  We use the 'Big Cat Collins' Phonics scheme which aligns with letters and sounds and allows children to practise the sounds that they are currently learning in class.  The books are organised in colour bands and as children develop their reading skills, they will move through the different could bands until they are 'free readers' and can choose to read any book they wish.  Please click here to see the various colour bandings and how they link to the children's phonics development.  We encourage children from Year 2 onwards, to develop their independence and love for reading, to choose their own books to take home.  In reception and Year 1, adults will support the child in changing their books.


Being Inclusive

We at Fullwood pride ourselves on our inclusive practice.  As part of our duties in the Equality Act 2010 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014, we ensure that our curriculum is accessible for those with disabilities or special educational needs by adapting our provision to meet all of our children's needs
