On this page and in the linked pages you will find out all about our curriculum at Rosedale. There is information about our Curriculum Intent (what we teach), our Curriculum Implementation (how we teach it) and our Curriculum Impact (how our curriculum has an impact on our children).
The documents below show how we teach the different aspects of English at Rosedale. We have worked as a staff to put these documents together so that our English provision meets the needs of our children.
To ensure that children reads a wide range of stories during their time at Rosedale, we use the Pie Corbett Reading Spine. This is a range of carefully selected texts that are read in each year group. Click the link below to see which stories are read in each year group so that you can see the books that your child is reading in class. Children will study other texts as well as these, but these are the core texts.
Teaching Early Reading and Phonics
In Foundation Stage and Year 1 children have a daily phonics lesson to teach them the sounds of the English language. This enables them to blend words so that they can read them. We teach phonics using Letters and Sounds.
When children are first learning to read the books that they read are all decodable and match the level that they are working at in phonics. This gives them the opportunity to practise the phonemes that they are learning to help them become fluent. Our decodable readers are from the Floppy's Phonics, Jelly & Bean and Phonic Books schemes.
At the end of Year 1 children take the Phonics Screening Check and any children who don't meet the required standard for the check will continue to receive daily phonics lessons in Year 2 to ensure that they meet the required standard when they retake the Check at the end of Year 2.
The document in the section above explains more about how we teach reading fluency and comprehension.
We teach maths following the units provided by the White Rose Maths Hub. We ensure that in our maths lessons children have opportunities to develop their fluency, reasoning and problem solving and emphasise the importance of using concrete resources to help children really understand concepts.
The link below takes you to the White Rose Maths Hub website where you can download the plans for each year group. Teachers at Rosedale use these to form the underlying structure of their teaching but adapt the plans to suit the needs of the learners in their classes.
We have designed our curriculum so that it meets the needs of and engages our children. For some of our subject we started with the Cornerstones curriculum as the basis of our curriculum but have built on this to make it link to our school and local community. At the heart of our curriculum are our curriculum drivers - enterprise, SMSC, healthy learning healthy lives, parent and community involvement and building learning powers.
For each topic we have knowledge organisers for history, geography and science. We also have skills progression documents to show which skills we will be teaching in the other foundation subjects. Click the links below to view our knowledge organisers as well as the documents where we have mapped out the objectives and content of our science, history and geography curriculum.
For DT, Art, Music and Computing we have created skills progression documents to show how children will develop their skills as they move through school. Click the links below to download these documents.
We follow a scheme called You, Me, PSHE across school. This includes the following units:
- Sex and Relationship Education
- Drug, Alcohol and Tobacco Education
- Keeping Safe and Managing Risk
- Mental Health and Emotional Wellbeing
- Physical Health and Wellbeing
- Careers, Financial Capability and Economic Wellbeing
- Identity, Society and Equality
We also work with Big Talk Education who provide sessions for every year group on Sex and Relationship Education.
We follow the Doncaster Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education.
The language that we teach at Rosedale is French. Children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 are taught some key words and phrases that are used within the school day, for example greetings. This enables them to build a familiarity with French.
Children in Key Stage 2 have a timetabled French lesson each week.
