Terms/Topic Information

At Holy Trinity C of E Nursery and Primary School, we utilise the Cornerstones scheme of work. Parents will receive a Curriculum Booklet and Knowledge Organiser at the start of each term informing them about what the children will be learning. This will also be available below to download.

During Term 5 of Year 2, pupils will sit National Curriculum tests in Maths and English, known as Standard Attainment Tests (SATs), this data allows us to identify areas of learning that require further consolidation and enable us to support each child in their specific educational needs.

More Infomation about the subjects can be found on our curriculum pages.
