The Curriculum- Key Stage One and Two
At Rodney House emphasis is placed on developing key skills in the areas of Communication and Language, PSED and Physical Development.
In Key Stage One and Two we deliver the National Curriculum through a half termly theme. The EYFS approach to learning of experience, consolidation and activity, continues into Key Stage One and beyond.
Thematically the National Curriculum is delivered at an appropriate level and in an appropriate way for the class group and individual.

Rodney House Curriculum Delivery
Learning is delivered through a theme. Repetition of activities throughout the year ensures children have the opportunity to consolidate and develop their skills. At all levels children are encouraged to be independent learners.
All curriculum areas are covered inside and outdoors click here to learn more about our Eco learning activities
Learning outside the classroom allows children to develop and apply independence and life skills. We regularly take trips into the local community such as visiting the supermarket with a shopping list (Literacy) or to practice walking independently on a visit to the park (Physical/PSED).
Parents and carers are always welcome to join our educational visits. To provide first hand experiences, classes will often conduct an educational visit linked to provide a real experience of the topic being explored in the classroom. This practical experience supports children's understanding of their topic. For example a visit to a garden centre may take place to support learning about growing and spring.
To find out more about our school curriculum please speak to your class teacher - topic booklets that detail the learning that will take place this half term are available on each class web page.
