Our Curriculum

At Brougham Primary School we feel strongly that the curriculum needs to foster creativity and to be driven by what the pupils in Brougham Primary need. The drivers for our curriculum are: 

Possibilities To explore possibilities, to challenge stereotypes especially gender, to be the best they can be

Belonging To develop respect of each other, to know their place in the community and how to look after it.

Confidence Emotional and physical security, confidence, to know that failure is part of the learning process and to develop self esteem.

Initiative To be independent learners, solve problems, have aspirations for their future and good life skills.

These drivers ensure that wherever possible the curriculum is delivered in a way that explores these issues. We believe that the school motto “We care, we share, we learn” embodies this. Great care has been given to ensure correct coverage of the National Curriculum and that assessment has been built in.

Early Years

Read, Write, Inc.

At Brougham Primary School children across EYFS, Key Stage One and Key Stage Two take part in the Read, Write Inc. synthetic phonics programme written by Ruth Miskin. Read Write Inc is a lively and systematic method of teaching synthetic phonics. Children learn the 44 common sounds in the English language and how to sound-blend words for reading (decoding) at the same time as developing handwriting skills and spelling (encoding). The children read and write each day, and enjoy reading story books and non-fiction books matched to their level of reading. This programme begins in the Foundation Stage and once your child is reading at a level 2a they will have completed the programme.

Year 1 and 2

Reading Scheme

In Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, reading books are organised by colour book bands which correspond to a National Curriculum level. The children choose independent reading books and in Key Stage 1 the children have home reading books according to their given colour band whilst in Key Stage 2 children are encouraged to take a book home that is of interest to them from their classroom, topic area or library to be shared with someone at home. Within each year group, Children read in groups for guided reading which match their book banded levels.

Literacy Lessons

Once children have completed the Read, write Inc program they join a literacy group. Within these groups, children complete a wide range of literacy activities to develop their reading, writing and speaking and listening skills based around a selected text. Wherever possible these texts are linked to the children’s current topic. During these sessions, a large emphasis on developing each child’s reading comprehension skills along with their writing composition ability which includes an understanding of grammatical structures. Children from year 2 to year 6 take part in these sessions and therefore throughout their primary school career the children are given the opportunity to access a wide range of texts which aims to develop a love of reading and writing for pleasure.
