The Reception children follow a broad curriculum based on the Early Learning Goals; this forms the final part of the Foundation Stage. From Year 1 (aged 5) the children follow the National Curriculum. This has 3 core subjects – English, Mathematics and Science and 7/8 foundation subjects (depending upon Key Stage) – History, Design and Technology, Computing, Geography, Art and Design, Music, Physical Development and Languages (for Key Stage 2).

At Langdon we teach phonics in order to help children with early reading skills, we teach comprehension skills, inference and deduction through real books and texts, often linked to our learning in Integrated Learning lessons.

Our Integrated Learning Plans show topics and themes that we teach in a cross curricular way.
For 2020-2021, they can be viewed by clicking on the Remote Learning plans below. We have included them in these documents for parents and children to refer to in the case of children needing to self isolate or whole bubble/school closure due to coronavirus/Covid-19.
In the event of a partial or full school closure, our Remote Education plan will come into action.
