We are very proud of our curriculum at Broadway. We have spent a long time ensuring that it is tailored to the needs of our children. Each year children will be taught six topics – these are designed with the children’s interest in mind and not only focus on Literacy and Maths but also the Foundation subjects. We try and encourage as many visits and visitors as possible and ensure that we use the local area to enhance the topics further.
Literacy – Writing
We follow a Mastery approach to English through the programme ‘Pathways to Write.’ Units of work are delivered using high quality texts and children in all year groups are given varied opportunities for writing. Skills are built up through repetition within the units, and children apply these skills in the writing activities provided. Many opportunities for widening children’s vocabulary are given through the Pathways to Write approach and this builds on the extensive work we do in school to provide our children with a rich and varied vocabulary.
You will find the end of year expectations for writing, reading and spoken language for each of our year groups in the attached documents. For further detail on the skills that your children are learning on a termly basis, please contact your class teacher.
Literacy – Spelling
We follow a mastery approach to the teaching of spelling through the programme ‘Pathways to Spell’. It is a programme designed to deliver the statutory content of the Primary National Curriculum for spelling in key stages 1 and 2. Through weekly teaching of spelling objectives and development of a whole school approach to word transcription, vocabulary development and proof-reading, the programme aims to develop children as proficient spellers.

We believe children should not always be given the answer in Maths and should investigate many different ways to find a solution. We are working with NCTEM to develop our maths further and follow the WhiteRose Maths Curriculum from EYFS to Y6.
Broadway Curriculum Document – Foundation Skills
Broadway has it’s very own bespoke curriulum that guides teachers and parents to the many different learning opportunities that take place every year at Broadway. Within the Broadway Curriculum Document you will find an overview and the skills taught for each subject including Art, RE, History and Science. The document is reviewed each year to ensure that it still meets the needs of our children.
We are currently working with Mary Myatt to ensure that we continue to develop our curriculum and that it allows children to explore their learning opportinuties.
