At Oasis Academy Skinner Street we believe that learning should be a journey of discovery and excitement at all stages. Therefore we aim to provide challenging and engaging learning experiences both in and out of the classroom. Each child will have their own path to walk, their own journey, and we want to ensure that our curriculum and everyday teaching reflects this, so that everyone can end the year feeling like they are confident in their achievements and progress.
In order to see the value in what they are learning our pupils' experiences should be firmly rooted in their day-to-day life. We want the lessons our children learn to carry with them outside of our classrooms and build the foundations of a passion for learning. In order to help us do this we want our parents to be in the know about what their children are learning each week.
We teach an exciting and creative curriculum and our aim is to encourage our learners to achieve their very best and to ensure they develop skills and talents in all aspects of intellectual, social and physical development. We use Cornerstones Curriculum and The Power of Reading as the basis for our learning across the academy.
From Years 1 through to 6, children have formal daily Maths and English lessons. Phonics is taught daily in KS1.
In Years 3-6, PE is taught by their teachers. Pupils in KS2 have swimming lessons as part of this provision. A music specialist comes in weekly to work with specific year groups.
