Curriculum

Through our broad and balanced curriculum we aim to enable children to grow into informed, independent people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they achieve their true potential.

A curriculum is a list of guidelines and content that are required to be taught by teachers and learnt by pupils. To see the National Guidelines that Shortbrook are following click here.

Read Write Inc - 'raising standards in Literacy'

We are currently using Read Write Inc in school which is a resource that provides a structured and systematic approach to literacy. It is used to help create fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers.

Jolly Phonics

We use Jolly Phonics in school as it is a fun, child friendly method of teaching literacy. The sound of a letter is taught using actions for each of the 42 letter sounds. Jolly Phonics teaches children the five key skills for reading and writing.

The five skills taught in Jolly Phonics include:

  • Learning the letter sounds
  • Learning letter formation
  • Blending sounds together to create words
  • Identifying sounds in words
  • Tricky words

A new National Curriculum began in 2014.  This change affected children in Y3, Y4 and Y5 from September 2014 and applied to Y6 children from September 2015.

 

The School is using the 'STAT' Sheffield assessment approach along with the majority of schools in the city.
