At Corby Glen Primary School, all classes use the OUP 'Project X' Reading scheme as the spine of our reading curriculum. This enables clear progression and continuity for all pupils throughout school. However, we always encourage and utilise a range of genre and authors to give children a well-rounded reading experience.
All children in KS1 are taught phonics. This involves the recognition of letter patterns and sounds to enable them to decode new words within their reading. At Corby Glen we use Letters & Sounds and PhonicsPlay to deliver our phonics teaching.
Long Term Curriculum
We are proud of our new Creative Curriculum based on 'Cornerstones'. We aim to provide a motivating and challenging curriculum that engages and excites our children - a curriculum in which our children can build on their previous learning and help them become true independent learners. At Corby Glen we work on a two year rolling programme. This ensures that all children experience a broad, balanced and in-depth curriculum. These plans are outlined below. Below, you will also find the maths coverage for each age group. To view specific information about each class and their termly work, please visit the class pages.
Across our maths in school, we are using a small steps 'mastery' approach. In practice, this means slower but more detailed coverage of key objectives, especially place value. It also provides far more opportunities for reasoning and problems solving for all pupils.
We are using guidance and documentation from the maths hubs to enable us to deliver an in-depth, structured and effective curriculum. Below you will find the yearly overviews for each year group. Included in these documents are the background and rationale behind these programmes of study.
EYFS are following the GLOW Maths Hub documents, whilst years 1-6 will follow those from White Rose Maths.
