St Gilbert's Curriculum
At St Gilbert's R.C. Primary School the most important underlying principle of a curriculum is to help children learn. We believe that a successful curriculum is brought to life by high quality teaching, inspirational learning activities and opportunities to listen and plan for the developing interests and motivations of children.
To find out more about the curriculum your child is following please look on the curriculum maps for each year group below or speak to your child's teacher.
Our R.E. Curriculum is taken from the Scheme 'Come and see' as recommended by the Salford Diocese.
EYFS and Key Stage 1
At St Gilbert's we teach phonics across KS1 by following the Read, Write Inc scheme. We follow Phases 1 - 6 starting in EYFS. Please click here for more information.
Our book banded reading scheme is made up of books from Oxford Reading Tree, Dandelion Launchers, Bug Club, Collins Big Cat and a variety of other reading schemes. Throughout the scheme we encourage the children to take home a range of picture, fiction and non fiction books to read for pleasure.
