Our Curriculum

Please click on the link to watch our Curriculum Intent video.
At Victoria Road we follow Letters and Sounds​ phonics programme. Click on the link below for more details.
At Victoria Road we are working hard developing a love of reading with all our children. It is our expectation that all children read their school reading book at home at least 3 times per week.
Reading is a life skill and opens up the curriculum to all children. All children are entitled to reach their full potential, therefore we hope this initiative will be well supported.
Do to current restrictions and to minimise any risks, we are using Reading Planet as a tool for home reading. Children are assigned books according to their colour book band. Children are expected to read a minimum of 3 times per week and a record is kept on Seesaw. If children have recorded 3 weekly reads they will receive a smiley face stamp. If children are not reading 3 times a week, they will receive a sad face.
Reading Books

At Victoria Road we use a book banding system to group books in bands of different colours to show the different levels.

Using colour allows children the freedom to choose their own book at the appropriate level for them

Pink, Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, Orange, Turquiose, Purple, Gold, White, Lime

As a school we follow a creative curriculum on a two-year rolling programme. We have incorporated the Learning Challenge Curriculum questions as the driver to introduce and engage our children. Please click on the link to read more about the main principles.
An overview of our curriculum can be found on each class page. It will be updated every half term to allow you to see what your child is learning.
