Core Curriculum


Reading is at the heart of children's learning and this is prioritised through our curriculum and timetabled opportunities to read to the children,  for children to practise and developing reading skills and fluency, for them to become expert readers, who develop a love of reading.

Using key texts and supplementary texts our children are exposed to a range of writing models and vocabulary so they can then develop their own writing across a range of genres. Vocabulary is explored with children in terms of its origin, meaning, synonyms etc and the children are expected to retain this and use it in their own writing and oracy opportunities. We use Jolly phonic materials to support progression in the teaching of Spelling and Grammar across the school. 


In September this year, we adopted the Jolly Phonics programme in our approach to teaching phonics consistently throughout the Early Years and KS1.

Phonics is a method of teaching children to read by linking sounds (phonemes) and the symbols that represent them (graphemes, or letter groups). Phonics is the learning-to-read method used in primary schools in the UK today. 

Below is a list of websites that are available to support your child’s learning:

Our aim for Mathematics at Charville is to raise standards through teaching a mastery style curriculum. We deliver a curriculum that allows children to develop their fluency and reasoning skills and have opportunities to deepen and extend their learning through problem solving. Children are taught Maths using the concrete – pictorial – abstract approach where children move freely through the approaches.
