Curriculum Overview

This can replace everything that is on the curriculum page please!

 

We follow the National Curriculum 2014 to base our curriculum planning on.

 

 

 

Our curriculum is based upon a themed approach so that our children experience  cross-curricular topics over the academic year. (Usually two topics per term but sometimes and in year 6 one topic per term).   This ensures that they engage in meaningful and exciting activities, which are fully mapped to cover the National Curriculum requirements.   By incorporating themes into subject areas and incorporating personal and learning skill development techniques, the curriculum equips children to be lifelong learners, successful not just in tests, but in their education and life beyond. If you would like to find out more information about our school curriculum please see our Curriculum Maps for each year group.

 

Regular visits and trips will happen regularly throughout the year to help make the learning relevant for the children and engage them in their learning.  We also encourage theme days where individual classes or whole school focus on a different themes i.e. World Cup Day, World book Day, Languages Day . 

 
 
Our integrated curriculum moves away from the subject-based approach allowing for an adventurous and imaginative approach to topic-based learning. By incorporating themes into subject areas and incorporating personal and learning skill development techniques, the curriculum equips children to be lifelong learners, successful not just in tests, but in their education and life beyond.
 
Each year group will study six Learning Units throughout the year which provide meaningful context for teaching and learning, helping to motivate and engage pupils using strategies such as role-play, drama, model-making, presentations, videos and more.
 
Having a topic-based approach allows children time to get under the skin of the foundation subjects and bring their learning alive. Regular visits and trips will happen regularly throughout the year to help make the learning relevant for the children and engage them in their learning.
