The Curriculum at Talbot Primary School - 2016-17
At Talbot Primary School, we teach the NAtional Curriculum. English and Maths are taught each morning and the foundation subjects are taught in the afternoons.
Many of the foundation subjects are taught together as themes - with an engaging "Big Question" to get the children thinking. This creative approach puts learning in a context, which makes it more meaningful. Other subjects are taught discretely, because there in no natural link.

Phonics in Reception and Key Stage One
The effective teaching of phonics is a vital part of the teaching of reading. As such, phonics is taught in a systematic and engaging way across Reception and Key Stage One.
Reading in Reception and Key Stage One
Our Reading schemes are all phonics based, to support the teaching and learning of phonics.
We use a range of schemes, for both guided and individual reading, that are all colour banded, according to the National book band levels. This offers a diverse range of genres, styles and formats to meet the needs and interests of all pupils. These schemes include Bug Club, Rigby Star, Rigby Rocket, OUP Project X, Oxford Reading Tree, and Get Reading Right.
