At Brixington Academy we pride ourselves on delivering an engaging, creative curriculum that responds to children's interests as well as their prior learning and areas for development. Our core focus is to ensure children have gained the skills, concepts and knowledge needed in reading, writing and maths for each year group expectation.
Making our curriculum and learning meaningful is extremely important to us and classes base their learning around topics that bring together the wide range of subjects taught. Classes cover one topic per term and Foundation covers one topic each half term. We take on a holistic approach to children's learning meaning that in one session children may be covering literacy, art and ICT objectives or indeed a range of other subjects.
We understand that children's foundations for learning, including fluency of number, and key phonics skills for reading and writing, are paramount. The Letters and Sounds scheme is delivered for phonics, and this is supported by comprehension teaching and activities as well as guided and whole-class reading times.
Please see Year Group Planning documents below showing the subject content for this year. Should you require any further information about your child's learning and the curriculum they will be taught, please do not hesitate to contact their class teacher, Unit Leader or the Head of Teaching and Learning.
