A variety of topics and themes are covered in each year group, where children will be taught set objectives in line with the national curriculum. Different classes may approach tasks in a variety of ways and this allows us to provide an enriching and exciting learning experience. The learning experience is further enhanced with a range of school trips and visitors.

PHONICS and READING

As a school, we use the Letters and Sounds program to teach Phonics. You can read more about the program with this link:
Letters and Sounds information

We have a broad range of books to cater for the interests of all children, rather than using a particular reading scheme.  Books are colour banded to meet individual children’s needs.

Teachers and TAs regularly read with children at school and books go home daily to encourage parents and children to read together.

MATHS

Have you ever thought?  “They don’t do maths like when i was in school.” or “I wish I knew how to help my child with calculations.”

Here is our Maths calculation policy. This explains how we teach your children at Roman Hill Primary School.

NATIONAL CURRICULUM 

PSHE at Roman Hill Primary

PSHEe – This stands for Personal, Social and Health Education.  At Roman Hill, we have added a small ‘e’ at the end of this acronym.  This stands for ‘Safety when using the Internet.’

PSHE is a non-statutory subject.  This means that we can develop a curriculum which enables our teachers to deliver high-quality PSHE lessons, which because of our PSHEe programme, are tailored to the specific needs of their children. We give our children a good understanding of risk, for example, and help them acquire the knowledge and skills they will need to make safe and informed choices.

Our school uses the Jigsaw PSHE scheme. For more information about Jigsaw, click on the links below:.
