Curriculum and Learning

At Chilton Foliat Church of England (VA) Primary School we pride ourselves on offering a colourful and varied curriculum.

Wherever possible we embed learning within a topic in order to catch, or hook, children’s interests therefore leaving them eager to learn and find out more. We know that children who are enthusiastic will learn and we place this at the centre of our planning. We ensure our curriculum offers many first hand experiences, whether this is through a visiting author, a themed day, a school trip or a family learning day in order to stimulate learning for all children.

We provide a wide range of enriched educational opportunities including learning a musical instrument, specialist sports coaching, taking part in school productions or designing and creating a work of art. Expanding and celebrating every child’s strength is a key aim of Chilton Foliat School.

Our curriculum enables children to become independent learners, who understand both ‘what’ and ‘why’ they are learning and identify their next steps to success. We encourage active learning by promoting and supporting quality interaction through talking, listening, reflecting and responding. Children are encouraged to learn in a variety of ways individually, as a pair, or as part of a team.

We follow Letters and Sounds phonics scheme and The Oxford Reading Tree supported by other books in Key Stage 1
