The Aims for Teaching and Learning at Houghton Conquest

Overview of topics

Autumn 1 Autumn 2 Spring 1 Spring 2 Summer 1 Summer 2
Pre-School Throughout our Early Years Provision we adopt weekly changing themes through the model of ‘In The Moment planning’.  Themes are carefully planned out a week in advance based on the current interests of specific children in our setting.  Each child has a dedicated focus week at least once per term where they, and their parents, provide an insight into their interests which are then used as stimuli for scaffolding learning needs.
Year 1 Into the Woods Fire and Ice Wild and Wonderful
Year 2 Splish, Splash, Splosh Turrets and Tiara’s Into the Secret Garden
Year 3/4 World War 2 Extreme Earth What is an author’s secret ingredient?
Year 3/4 Tombs and Treasures The Roman World around us The Stone Age

Curriculum Maps relating to the above topics can be found on the the Class Information page (under Children).

We use the DfE Letters and Sounds scheme for teaching Phonics in our school.
