At Tupton Primary we follow the National Curriculum by using the Cornerstones Curriculum and the Derbyshire Agreed Syllabus for RE.

There is one Imaginative Learning Project (ILP) for each term, giving children a broad, balanced and exciting curriculum. Each topic starts with a Big Bang which could be a challenge day, a visitor into school or a visit to somewhere connected with the topic. For example Y5 had a planetarium come to school for their Stargazers topic and Y4 went to Castleton and spent the day finding out what life was like for the Romans as part of their Traders and Raiders topic.

We follow the National Curriculum for English and maths, often using the Cornerstones Curriculum as a stimulus for our work.

If you would like any additional information about your child’s topics for this year, please contact their class teacher.

Curriculum Overview - follow this link for a more in depth look at the curriculum for each year group.

We use a variety of books from different reading schemes that are banded into different colours according to the difficulty of the text. Having a wide range of texts helps to promote a love of reading as well developing key reading skills.

Our phonics teaching is based on Read Write Inc and is supplemented with resources from other schemes.

Through our curriculum, including RE and PSHE, we promote British Values that are important for life in modern Britain.
