An overview of the Huntingtree curriculum
What do lessons look like for my child?
In nursery and reception, children experience learning as a balance of adult-led direct teaching and independent, free-flow activities. Children learn inside and out, in great learning spaces (take a look at our virtual tours here). Learning is based around a unit organiser - which ensures that children learn the right things at the right times. They are exposed to great stories - read to them and in the environment - and learn phonics each day.
Ending reception and entering year 1
As the children reach the end of their time in early years, there is a period of transition when the children learn to adjust to a more formal style of teaching. This transition continues into the Autumn term in year 1 - and may be extended for some children, if needed.
Years 1 to 6
Children in year 1 to 6 are taught in mixed ability classes - although some ability groupings take place (in phonics and reading lessons, for example). Learning is presented in subject-based topics, which we call units. (Some schools prefer to create topics that draw in learning from different subjects at the same time.)
SEND and accessibility
We take seriously our duties in the Equality Act 2010 and the Special Educational Needs and Disability Regulations 2014 about making the curriculum accessible for those with disabilities or special educational needs. Click on the link below to find out more.
