The curriculum is the vehicle through which we ensure that all our children receive a broad, balanced and exciting curriculum. We teach in a way that enables children to experience learning through all their senses, through art, music, drama and role play, through exploration of materials and through problem solving.
By the time your child comes to the end of the reception year they will be working towards the learning objectives within the National Curriculum. The National Curriculum guides our teaching and learning for children in Year 1 and 2 (Key Stage 1) and in Years 3 to 6 (Key Stage 2).
The organisation of the curriculum gives us a systematic approach to the teaching of key skills for basic English and Maths as well as the application of Computing. We provide a wide range of learning situations i.e. individual, paired, supported, independent, groups and class work so that differing needs can be met, ensuring access to the full curriculum for every child.
We arrange numerous special events which stimulate the interests of the children. Visits from story tellers, musicians, themed weeks such as book week, maths week and arts week and class outings are all encouraged and carefully planned. Strong links are created between subjects by the use of 'Learning Journeys' so that children's knowledge and skills can be used across the curriculum.
Core subjects: English, Maths, Science, Computers, Religious Education
Foundation subjects: Design and Technology, Geography, History, PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education), Art, Physical Education, Music.
Our curriculum is just one step in the learning journey for our children. We aim to promote an interest in learning that will carry on throughout the child's life. We liaise very closely with parents and carers, with our pre-schools and our secondary schools to provide continuity of education.
