Curriculum

To find out more about each year group, please use the 'Classes' tab on the left hand menu. 

The curriculum has been designed to offer a wide range of opportunities and experiences to build confidence and resilience and develop the belief that they can achieve great things and be who they want to be. 

 Maths

 Our Maths curriculum is based on the programmes of study within the National Curriculum. The school follows the White Rose schemes of work to ensure progression of skills and knowledge, whilst offering opportunities to develop reasoning, fluency and problem solving.  

 

English

In English, the school uses a number of different materials to support planning and teaching, with the units of work designed to ensure progression of skills. and knowledge. 

Writing - Every class takes part in Big Writing once a week, which is an opportunity for children to write at length for the pleasure of writing.

Reading - There are opportunities weekly for guided reading as well as reading for pleasure, especially in our new, themed library, and the school encourages a positive reading culture through ambassadors, awards and prizes.

 

Foundation Subjects

Foundation Subjects are taught through topics. Each topic has a main focus such as Geography or History. Where ever possible, links are made to the English and Maths curriculum. The school uses visitors and educational visits off-site to enhance pupils' experiences.

 

RE

 All state schools are required to make provision for a daily act of collective worship and they must teach religious education. At Hazelmere, we follow the Essex agreed syllabus for RE, called 'RE Matters for Every Child'. In KS2 the children are introduced to the six major world faiths (Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism and Sikhism) and Humanism, so, over time, they begin to recognise similarities and differences between religious and beliefs. They develop their ability to distinguish right from wrong and start to consider their own beliefs and values.

 

Planning

Curriculum maps are available on each year group’s home page. They are updated in September each year so that our most recent planning is shown. Please click the links to open each plan.
