Manor Primary School is committed to meeting the requirements of the new curriculum from Spetember 2014. We have updated our schemes of work to reflect the content and challenge of the new curriculum. Teachers have received training in the key areas of curriculum change and we are ready to provide outstanding curriculum provision. The curriculum will be taught with the consideration of the needs of all learners. Our curriculum is exciting and inspires children to nurture a passion for learning.
Teaching and topics are fun, lively and engaging so that our children can develop socially, emotionally and academically without even realising through directed and independent tasks. Good use is made of the outdoor area and children are encouraged to be creative problem solvers who are motivated to try new things and curious about the world around them.
Key Stage One & Two
We have developed our own Curriculum to meet the needs of our children. Our focus for our pupils is to develop the core skills of language, reading, writing, spelling and mathematics and foster a love of learning. Learning is planned around topics to interest out pupils.
As children grow older we introduce more breadth into their learning; by extending core learning and providing knowledge of science, history, geography, art & design, music and physical education. We use ICT to make learning exciting and prepare children for the ever changing world they are growing up in.
The final Years 5 & 6 give our pupils the opportunity to become more responsible for their learning; to aspire to high expectations and ensure they are ready for secondary school. Every child is given targets to work towards and can talk about what they have learnt and know their next steps.
Pupils have a range of schemes to help them develop their reading skills. Our main scheme 'Phonics Bug' this is phonic based and pupils are given books according to their phonic ability.
Children in Key Stage 1 and Foundation Stage also have access to Rigby Star and Oxford Reading Tree. Children in Key Stage 2 have access to Oxford Reading Tree and Literacy World.

Teachers continuously assess every individual so that pupils may achieve their full potential. We are always seeking to challenge and interest our pupils.
Pupils engage in a range of activities to enchance their learning experiences through collaborative and practical activities, active learning through technology and educational visits.
Children benefit from linking their learning within school to what they do at home, this can be achieved by simply sharing a reading book daily and completing a range of activites to complete for their TAKEAWAY HOMEWORK (this can also be completed during homework club). For this please follow the link to your child's class page.
