National Curriculum

Here at Hagbourne CE Primary School we have a whole school approach to the National Curriculum, in line with our vision ‘preparing each child for their future in an ever-changing world’. We believe that we must equip our pupils with skills and tools to thrive in tomorrow’s world. Three times a year, the whole-school comes together for a skills-based unit of work, and each teacher plans learning opportunities for their class within that area. Examples are our ‘Who Am I?’ topic, based on historical enquiry skills and involving dressing up and the creation of a school museum, and ‘Let’s Investigate’ based on science investigation skills with a Science Fair and shows and workshops presented by Science Oxford.

Reception and KS1 children also have daily sessions of systematic synthetic phonics, following the DfE’s Letters and Sounds scheme. We use Phonics Bug teaching software and ebooks to make sessions fun and interactive!
