At Nunthorpe Primary we teach Literacy and many other subjects through a variety of exciting themes, shown on our Theme matrix.  The themes stem from the Science, History & Geography National Curriculum.  Most themes involve a visit, visitor or experience to stimulate and engage children and provide exciting opportunities to learn and particularly to write.


We teach the Ruth Miskins Phonics Programme; Read, Write, Inc. throughout school.


As children begin to read they are introduced to the Book Band system which enables children to read from age related material with the correct level of difficulty.  As they become more confident in reading, usually sometime during Year One, children are introduced to our online reading system; Accelerated Reader.  Children then read books at their level of comprehension and take online quizzes to ensure understanding.


Maths teaching is supported by NRich, Abacus, Apex, Numicon and other quality resources. Resources are tailored to fit the needs of each pupil.


Science is taught by a specialist teacher in Years 2 to 6.  This enables science to be given a high priority in the curriculum and allows time for practical investigation.  Numeracy and Literacy skills are enhanced through science teaching.


The school has a full calendar of events and activities related to SMSC (Social, Moral, Spiritual & Cultural) aspects of learning. Click here to see the SMSC Calendar 2018/19.
