The programme of study for the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum in Reception and the National Curriculum in Year 1 and Year 2 are incorporated into a termly learning enquiries alongside a strong emphasis on learning skills. There are times during the term when subjects are taught as part of the topic and times when subjects are taught discretely. Cross curricular links are also made to reinforce learning. It is important our children learn basic skills across the curriculum to provide a firm foundation to their learning. There is a strong emphasis on our curriculum being practical, stimulating and interactive, so regular opportunities for visits, as well as artists, musicians, sports coaches etc. visiting Widcombe Infant School to work with the children are provided to extend the curriculum. A mixture of teaching styles is used ranging from direct teaching of whole class to specific teaching with individual children. Children have the opportunity to work independently and are encouraged to take an active role in their own learning.
