At Oldfield Park Infant School the curriculum is organised around a series of exciting topics through which the children develop their knowledge and skills across all subject areas. Central to each topic is the systematic development of the core skills of reading, writing and mathematics which are given a high priority.
This approach makes learning more enjoyable and relevant for the children who are also given the opportunity to say what they would like to learn as part of the topic being studied. We believe that young children learn most successfully when they are actively involved in a variety of activities.
The teaching of skills is achieved through a balance of whole class, small group and individual teaching. Our teachers know each child’s strengths and needs and set regular targets for development in reading, writing and mathematics which are shared with children and their parents. There are also plenty of opportunities to support children with their learning at home.
