We are very proud of our curriculum! Designed by staff and built around our children’s needs and interests, the entire curriculum has been rooted in exciting contexts, to engage children in their learning. Each term, classes work towards an outcome (for example a showcase event) so that everything they do has a real purpose.
This year’s projects have included CSI Greenlands (in Y5 and Y6), The World of Harry Potter (in Y3 and Y4), The Banquet (in Y1 and Y2) and People Who Help Us (in Foundation Stage 2). You’ll be able find out lots about each project on the class pages. These pages are also full to the brim with photos, videos and blogs from all of our past projects, so you can have a look at all of the exciting learning that’s taken place in previous terms…
Our curriculum offers broad and balanced coverage of all age-appropriate maths and English objectives, as well as fully covering all foundation subject objectives as detailed in the National Curriculum. You can see which National Curriculum objectives are covered in each year by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page. In addition to these objectives, staff plan specific learning opportunities in four extra areas which we believe are very important for our children. We call these areas our curriculum ‘drivers’ and they are:
- Enterprise Education
- Environmental Education
- Community (helping children to become positive members of their local, national and global community)
- Social, Moral, Spiritual and Cultural Education (which incorporates elements such as British Values).
In addition to the above, phonics is taught using the Letters and Sounds programme.
If you’re interested to find out more we would be delighted to talk to you in school!
