Structure, Organisation & Progression

HOW DO WE IMPLEMENT OUR CURRICULUM?

Our curriculum is organised into termly themes and the programmes of study and objectives for individual subjects taught under one title where possible. This is because we know that our children learn best when they see a real purpose for why they are learning something and they benefit when they have the opportunity to apply taught skills in other areas. We are also keen to foster an enjoyment and passion for everything that they do in school. To see our overview of termly themes, please click on the document below:

Learning for individual National Curriculum subjects is taught as part of these termly themes and we have a progression document which sets out how the children build upon their knowledge and skills in an individual subject as they journey through the school.  Teacher’s use our progression document (see below) when completing termly thematic plans and they are careful to ensure that pupils build on previous knowledge taught and any skills acquired in a subject.

As part of each termly theme, a WOW Day event takes place.  This serves to celebrate the work completed and to reflect on the learning which has taken place, to culminate the skills and knowledge taught or to engage the children at the very start of a termly theme. An example from one of our most recent WOW Days is below – click on the link:
