Support for Parents

If you would like more information about our curriculum, please contact school.

The children’s learning logs have lists of spellings and the new expectations for maths – one of the most important changes of the new curriculum being that children should know their times tables off-by-heart by Y4. Chanting times tables might sound old-fashioned – but it does work! Please – if you could help your child learn their times tables (in the car? over supper? in the bath?), it would help their maths enormously (without a secure knowledge of times tables, children struggle with division, multiplication, fractions and percentages etc.)

RSE curriculum

RSE at John Blow is taught daily, even out of lessons, and is at the cornerstone of the entire curriculum and at the heart of our school. It is embedded within all our lessons and we will strive for a high level of RSE and social awareness for all children. Through using high-quality texts such as the Talking Points scheme, immersing children in inclusive and open dialogue through speaking or the utilisation of the arts, and ensuring new curriculum expectations, the progression of objectives are met. This will not only enable them to become primary literate but will also develop deep empathy, listening and sharing skills.

MFL - Spanish

Spanish is taught throughout the school utilising Language Angels.

Religious Education
