Yearly Overview

At St Barnabas we deliver daily sessions of Maths, Reading, Writing and Phonics where appropriate. In the afternoons, each week we focus on one subject for a whole week so that we can really explore it in detail.

Below is the time table for the whole year which shows the subjects and topics being covered each week.
