Curriculum Overview

Curriculum at Hope Brook

Here you will be able to find an overview for each class. They show what is taught in each class across a two year program (Year A and Year B).

Year A is the current academic year (2018-2019)

Year B was the last academic year (2017-2018)


Please note - our curriculum is currently being reviewed. Updated information will be posted here as soon as the review has been completed. Some changes have already affected plans for Wagtails and Kingfishers.

Along with these overviews we have a ‘Topic Web’ which shows more detail. These can be found on the ‘Class’ pages. Simply select the class you wish to look at from the drop down menu and you will be able to view these topic webs (one per term). Alongside these topic webs, you will also see all the exciting things the children in each class get up to – there are lots of fun pictures to look at!

You will also find information regarding PE Sports Funding and how phonics and reading are supported at Hope Brook School.
