Miss Lauren Wilson and Miss Amanda Doy are the lead teachers for curriculum planning. At Willowcroft, learning is linked to topics when possible, enabling children to link their learning across the different subjects.
There are six topics a year (three whole school topics and three year specific topics.)
In the Early years, topics follow the children's interests and learning is play based. This approach continues into Year 1 and is adapted as the year progresses to incorporate opportunities for more formal learning.
Children are taught phonics daily. Our approach is based on letters and sounds and uses some of the letter rhymes from Read Write Inc. Children read a variety of reading scheme books but mainly those from the Oxford Reading Tree.
