The Stannington Curriculum

The Stannington Curriculum

At Stannington First School we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Statutory Framework and the New Primary National Curriculum 2014. We also have a focus on outdoor learning through our Forest School. The children also have access to all the wonderful opportunities offered through our Squirrels Before and After School Club…there is always something exciting happening at Stannington!

Long Term Plans are readily available on the links below and Medium Term planning will be added every half term. Regular updates about what the children are doing will be shared through year group newsletters, meetings, workshops and information sharing with parents and carers and through our weekly school newsletter every Thursday.

As ever, if you have any further questions about our curriculum or how you can further support your child at home, please do get in touch.

Crime scene!

Last week we had a mysterious visitor in our classroom. They came in during the night and ate some porridge and broke some chairs! Can you guess who it was?

We looked at the clues they left behind and jotted down lots of questions into our ‘police’ notebooks.

Art work based on Matisse’s collages

We have been looking at Henri Matisse’s paper cut outs and have created some of our own.
