Autumn Term 2020 Curriculum

The primary focus of our curriculum is to recover learning from March 2020. Teaching staff are undertaking individual assessment in word reading, comprehension, reading fluency, spelling, mathematical fluency and understanding, so that the content of the curriculum can be adjusted accordingly.

The Government has recognised that “Children and young people across the country have experienced unprecedented disruption to their education as a result of coronavirus (COVID-19)” and have allocated ‘catch up premium funding’ to address this. To find out how we are utilising the funding follow this link to our catch up premium strategy.

Nanstallon School is prioritising study and learning of:

  • Reading Fluency
  • Maths Fluency
  • Physical Education and Outdoor Learning
  • Music and Art
  • Science

We are taking a gradual approach to reintroducing foundation subjects such as modern foreign languages. A return to the full curriculum is planned for Spring 2021.

Following consultation, RSE will also be introduced along with the full statutory curriculum.

Home Learning Curriculum (23 March 2020)

In line with government advice, our school site is partially closed to pupils other than those in priority groups. However, our school community remains busier than ever.  

We were well prepared for this situation having previously implemented online learning journals: Tapestry in Reception and Y1 and Seesaw in Y2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 for children to access and record their learning.  

All our teachers are posting an alternative home learning curriculum every school week. Every teacher posts learning activities every school day. The learning journals enable teachers, Teaching Assistants and pupils to communicate and interact. Every parent has contact with the teachers and their child’s learning through the journals.

Note to Parents: There is absolutely no need to replicate the school day at home and we strongly advise that you make plenty of time to relax, play and laugh together with your loved ones wherever possible.

Each week we have united the school community through our weekly home learning assembly videos.
