Our curriculum places learning at the centre. We want our children to be motivated and to be challenged. We want our children to be able to reflect on the way they learn and become confident learners.
Our pupils have opportunities to not only develop skills and knowledge in subjects but also to develop life-long learning skills. Our learning skils are listed opposite:
Our children will learn to be historians, geographers, artists……experiencing the whole curriculum at a deep level through exciting projects lasting no longer than six weeks. The projects always have a ‘hook' to engage the pupils, a home learning task and an outcome. The outcome gives a purpose for the learning.
The projects have lead subjects (one of these will always be English) and applied subjects (where pupils have the opportunity to use the skills they have previously been taught). We balance lead and applied subjects across the whole year. Having English as a lead in all projects is fundamental to enable the children to develop skills for reading, writing and speaking and listening.
You will find information on this part of our website regarding the projects planned each half term. These projects are carefully designed to cover the requirements of the National Curriculum and as we continue to plan across the year, the information available will grow.
