At Parkside Community Primary School we follow a Creative Curriculum. We integrate the separate curriculum areas into a topic, which may last for a half term or longer and which is brought alive by exciting, active learning experiences. We develop the children's independent learning skills through personalised learning; children let the teachers know what they know already about a topic and what they would like to learn. Above all, we believe that learning should be fun. We enrich the learning with trips and visitors.
We use Read, Write Inc. to teach phonics throughout the school. We use a variety of books within our reading scheme, having arranged our books according to Book Banding.
