What does your child learn at school each day?
The learning is based on the National Curriculum, although as an Academy we can make changes if we desire. The curriculum is so much more than just the individual subjects, although they are of course important.
At Stapleford Community Primary School we use topics to help teach the subjects. These are reviewed regularly by the teachers, who with their own previous experiences and subject specialisms bring the topics alive alongside personalizing the topics with the interests and ideas of the children. We believe that bringing topics alive through using visits and visitors are an important part of learning- often the part of schooling that children recall and reflect on for years. Each year group has a different learning topic or theme. These aim to provide a context for meaningful cross-curricular learning and may incorporate a mixture of subject.
Each term or half term your child's teacher will share the topic web with you, and are posted on the website. Not all subjects are taught in each half term.

We use Story time Phonics and Letters and Sounds for teaching phonics, and a range of reading books drawn from more than one reading scheme. These include Oxford Reading Tree, Collins 'Big cat' and Project 'X'. Storytime Phonics introduces the children to the 'Phonics Fairy' and high quality books.
The Phonic Fairy's motto is:-
"Reading makes us brainy, brainy brainy!"
In addition, there are other really useful sites where additional phonics fun can be found that might be useful for parents at home to help their children:-
