Curriculum Changes – Term 3 and 4 2019/2020
At St Chad’s Patchway Primary School, we are driven to ensure that the curriculum we offer our children is absorbing, engaging and exciting. In term 3 and 4, as a school, we are trialling a new structure of how foundation subjects are being taught across the school and how learning can continue to be fluid through Maths and English lessons. The documents below detail the school’s intent for the curriculum and how it will be implemented.

Our Rolling Programme
Reading and phonics
In school, especially in KS1, we follow two main reading schemes; Oxford Reading Tree and Project X. These books are supplemented with ‘free’ (non-scheme) books and as your child moves though school they will move more onto internally leveled free books.
The scheme most used in school is Letters and Sounds and we supplement this with LCP Phonics and occasionally with Phonics Play. We suggest that parents who wish to support their child at home with phonics looks first at Phonics Play as this is a free online resource.
If you would like any more information on the curriculum please contact the office and they will have the appropriate member of staff contact you, or alternatively please speak to your child’s class teacher.
