Across the school we use the Oxford Reading Tree scheme.

Each of our Year groups use a key text/book per term linked to their Irresistible Learning Project. Learning is linked directly to these as we feel that it is vital that all children experience a range of books throughout their time at Ashwood Park. A full list of these is available on the key planning document below.

Our Curriculum is assessed using key learning objectives for every subject in school. These objectives are linked to topics that are outlined per year group and per term. This ensures that there is a clear sequence of learning and expectations as the children progress through Ashwood Park. All of this information is available in the planning document shown below along with the English and Maths overviews.
