English and the Arts
In Key Stage 1 we use a synthetic approach to the teaching of phonics and use the Sounds-Write programme.
Art and Design
Pupils explore and develop ideas using a variety of materials and by looking at famous pieces of art from across the years and cultures.
Children are taught how to sing and play musical instruments in a controlled way and to explore sound and create their own short compositions. They listen to many types of music, learning about how it was created and how it was used. From Key Stage 2 children are each given the opportunity to learn a musical instrument.
