St Peter's Church of England Primary School

Supporting Your Child's Learning

We know that a great many parents understandably wish to play a full part in supporting their children’s learning at home. However, we also appreciate that some children can be rather less than forthcoming about what they are studying when asked at the end of the day, which somewhat hampers your ability to help them! Hence we have tried to supply you with information about the curriculum we have at St Peter’s. All of this information is contained in the drop down sections in this tab. They contain a lot of documents! 

To begin with, you have a tab entitled Curriculum Overviews. Here you will find a brief outline of what your children are studying, in every subject, over the course of the year. There is an overview for each year group.

The Skills Progressions outline the knowledge and disciplines we are trying to develop in the children, in every curriculum subject area. 

Following on, you will also find the Medium Term plans for a growing number of subjects. These provide more detail about what we are actually teaching in the different subject areas.

You then have power point presentations for some subjects, which provide practical ideas on what you can do at home to support your child's learning. 

In the Curriculum Policy Documents section, you will find outlines which explain our approach to teaching, as well as our Homework Policy.

We have tried to not overload you with information, but if you are confused by what you find presented here, please just speak to your child's teacher and they will clarify things.

We know that time is limited and that after a long day at school, many children understandably rebel against any further form of learning! But if you and they are so inclined, the information on these pages allows you to support what we are doing in school, either directly with additional lessons, or indirectly with museum visits, or a shared book on the Romans etc.

We hope you will find this information useful, but as I say, if you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask your child's teacher.
