Curriculum

We aim to deliver a rich and engaging curriculum to develop the child as a fulfilled individual and a responsible member of society. Our curriculum not only includes the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum but also a range of extra-curricular activities to enrich the children’s experiences.

We have a topic-based approach to learning underpinned by a progression of skills for each year group (in line with the new National Curriculum 2014). Each new topic begins with an exciting launch day to ‘hook’ the children in and ends with a WOW end; this is an opportunity to celebrate the children’s work with parents and guardians. There are planned opportunities each term including trips, visitors and hands on learning experiences to bring the topics to life!

Our whole school topics for 2016!

Term 1 – What a Wonderful World
Term 2 – Fire and Ice
Term 3 – Fantasy
Term 4 – Amazing Authors
Term 5 – When I Grow Up
Term 6 – Fashion
