Curriculum

The School Day

Reception and Nursery follow the Early Years Curriculum in both their indoor and outdoor classrooms.

All classes from Year 1 to Year 6 are timetabled to be taught Literacy, Numeracy and Guided reading daily, usually in the mornings. In the afternoon, the other foundation subjects are taught.

All pupils in Early Years, Key Stage One and Two have a fifteen minute break in the morning. All pupils have an hour for lunch.  In the afternoon Early Years and Key Stage One  have a short break, according to the needs of the curriculum. Free fruit is provided for Nursery, Reception and Key Stage One.

Every Friday at Landywood, the pupils enjoy our “Find Out Fridays” where children are immersed in our exciting topics.  These special days teach the children the subject knowledge and skills focussing on the National Curriculum’s Foundation Subjects.

Our accredited Forest School programme runs throughout the year, for children in Nursery through to Year 6, maximising the use of  the most of our school-based forests and outdoor  areas.

It is an inspirational process offering all learners opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning in  woodland and natural environments.
