Oldfield Primary & Nursery: Putting children first.
We welcome children to start as soon as they turn 3 years of age. Please call the School for more information on 01535 642394
We deliver our Curriculum through a broad and balanced offer. Children are placed at the heart of all we do. Reading is central to all our curriculum development and implementation. Please see the reading sections under the curriculum drop-down tab.
Below is a taster of how we teach. We launch each topic with a curriculum immersed start (normally a week in so some pre-teach can occur) This is underpinned by a carefully structured teaching sequence of our curriculum coverage. The pictures below show children role-playing World War Two evacuations. We then link this to modern recent evacuations or events seen. Throughout all our teaching is the vocabulary children need as the curriculum progresses. Right from Nursery we use this approach.
A key book is always used to hook learners in.
