Our curriculum

At St John's we follow a creative, topic-based curriculum that is led by a key text. The objectives for our curriculum come from the National Curriculum 2014. Towards the end of the Nursery year we use Read, Write, Inc. as our sole approach to the teaching of phonics. Click the link below to see our long term curriculum for this year. We will soon be adding a medium term plan, which provides further detail. If you would like to know more, please visit our subject website pages or attend one of our school workshops or parent events such as Share the Learning, Class Assembly or Parents' Evening.

In Spring 2, we will be learning the story Goldilocks and the Three Bears. We will be learning the story off by heart and changing parts of it to help us to make our own stories.

We will be learning how to make porridge. We will read and follow simple instructions for how to make porridge. We will taste the porridge. I wonder if we will all like it? I hope that Goldilocks doesn't eat it all up!

We will learn all about bears including where they live, what they eat and what they look like. We will be going on a bear hunt around our school. Watch out!

We will be learning about numbers to 6 as well as carrying on learning how to count to 10. We will also carry on learning to write our names. 

Most of our children are now learning to identify the first sound in most words so we will be playing lots of 'I spy' games.
