Our Approach to The Curriculum


We link our termly themes to a text, or range of texts in Key stage 1 and 2. This allows for a smooth transfer of skills from English lessons, where children will learn about text structure, audience, grammar, spelling and develop their reading comprehension, into their afternoon curriculum sessions. This gives learning a real meaning and a hook to engage the children into the topic. Classrooms are set up to reflect the topic being taught: displays, role play areas and resources, such as books and artefacts are used. 

In addition to our curriculum, we aim to provide the children with as many experiences as possible before they leave us in year 6.
