Sir Robert Geffery’s School – Curriculum Overview
At Sir Robert Geffery’s we have a skills based curriculum that is delivered in a cross curricular way. In KS 2 subject specialists deliver the curriculum in the afternoons. Maths is taught in sets across KS2 where children move up and never down! Four classes are organised into six sets reducing numbers. In literacy in year 5 and 6 again they are divided into smaller groups. In KS2 Talk for Writing and Big Writing are used within the literacy session. The children have additional spelling and grammar sessions as well as their daily literacy lesson. Phonics Bug is used in KS1 and foundation to deliver the daily phonic lesson and across the school the children have access to books from many different schemes. We are a learning based community and teach learning skills . All lessons start with a learning question that includes a learning muscle and a Bloom’s Taxonomy verb. Children use self assessment and learning lines to reflect on their learning after every session. Further information is available from the school and is often shared on the newsletter.
