About the curriculum We believe our curriculum should be innovative, engaging and meaningful. It should be irresistible and inspire all children for life. We follow the statutory guidelines of the National Curriculum
in England but we develop, expand and enrich this with additional activities.
During our #YearofReading (2017-2018), Monks Abbey won the nationwide reading competition '10 Million Minutes' hosted by Achievement for All. We won £10,000 to develop our reading areas throughout the school and work with Peters Books to purchase resources and furniture (see the link below). We have heavily invested in early reading materials and children who are in the early stage of reading benefit from Oxford Reading Tree texts to begin their reading journey. We have also invested in high quality guided reading texts from Badger Books, which provide the children with engaging and interesting texts to develop their skills as they move into Key Stage 2.
To support our teaching of phonics in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1, we use the Letters and Sounds phonics scheme.
