Our Curriculum

Our vision at St Germans School is to provide a stimulating environment that will develop enquiring minds and instil a love of learning in our children. We attribute high value to the future role of our children in society and  aim to develop their social awareness as future citizens of the world. 

There are four classes in the school, each being mixed age groups. Teaching methods are adapted to the subject matter and to the needs and abilities of the children. Each class is  supported by our excellent Teaching Assistants.

The school teaches from a topic based curriculum. This involves  three termly topics, with  cross curricular links. For some areas subject specific work is more appropriate. Extra-curricular activities and use of sports coaches and peripatetic music teachers enrich the curriculum and add to the children’s enjoyment of school life.

Our School Curriculum

The Reading Spine

Pie Corbett’s Reading Spine is a core of books that create a living library inside a child’s mind. It is a store of classics and essential reads that help children engage at a deeper level and enter the world of the story.

At St Germans, we want our school to be a place where children are read to, enjoy, discuss and work with high quality books. In each class we have a collection of specially selected high quality books that all children will have the opportunity to read. These books are part of Pie Corbett’s ‘Reading Spine’. 

Simple ways to make spelling fun!
