Our Curriculum at The Acorn Federation

At the Acorn Federation we believe that it is important to provide our children with a broad, balanced and exciting curriculum.

Our Garden Class (Reception, Year 1 and Year 2) follow a three year cycle of topics.


Our Meadow Class (Years 3, 4, 5 and 6) follow a four year cycle of topics.


We use the National Curriculum as the starting point of our 'Acorn Federation Curriculum'. 


Staff are currently reviewing the curriculum to ensure it is well sequenced and expected learning is clear.  As part of this process, curriculum leads are reviewing Knowledge Grids to ensure these are well sequenced and linked to Vocabulary Progression.


Assessment grids are used to assess pupil learning at the end of a unit of learning.  These assess the key knowledge and vocabulary taught during the unit.


If you require further information about our curriculum, or if there's something you cannot find, please contact the school or your child's teacher.
