At Keston C.E. Primary School we follow the 2014 National Curriculum and EYFS Curriculum. In KS1 we use RWI phonics and reading scheme, supplemented by other schemes such as Oxford Reading Tree. In KS2 we have a comprehensive “Core Collection” Reading Scheme. “The Power of Reading” is the main scheme for Literacy. The main scheme we use for Numeracy is “Maths No Problem! Keston follows the Bromley Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education and the school uses “The Learning Challenge” for all other areas of the curriculum.
We focus all of our geography, history, science, art and design learning into the Learning Challenge Curriculum (LCC). This means that instead of discrete lessons in the above subjects every week, we try to tie them all together under a Learning Challenge question. This question will then be investigated over half a term or a full term, allowing greater engagement in learning as each lesson feeds into a bigger picture. Hopefully, by the end of the term/half-term, the children will have learnt everything required to be able to offer a response to the original question.
