Wider Curriculum

For subjects like history, geography, art and DT, we use a topic based approach using the National Curriculum as our starting point.  This is based on a two year rolling program of topics.  For other, more discreet subjects, we follow schemes of work which offer a starting point as a source of inspiration.

Computing is taught discreetly using our school laptops that can be used across the curriculum. Currently we have a trolley of Ipads which all classes have access to plus a trolley of laptops. E-Safety is also taught to all pupils to ensure they know how to stay safe online.

In PHSE and RHSE we have introduced the Jigsaw scheme of work to supplement our values led work.  This comprehensive scheme covers all aspects of PHSE from friendships to RSE (Relationships and sex education).

In Music, we follow the Charanga scheme and, through this, the children develop their understanding, make musical judgements, apply their new learning, develop their aural memory, express themselves physically, emotionally and through discussion and create their own musical ideas

In MfL, we use an online resource called Language Angels.  Within this, we have opted as a school to use Spanish as our primary MfL.

In Art and DT children are given the opportunity to study a variety of artists and their work. Looking at the work of artists, craft workers and designers helps children make artistic judgements about the quality and usefulness of their creation. Our curriculum is designed to engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design.

In Science our curriculum aims to prepare children for the wider world. We strive to ensure that the lessons we deliver the three aims of the science national curriculum so that pupils understand the science and have the skills to engage with the knowledge and recognise where it fits in the wider world.

In Geography we aim to help children develop an awareness of their own immediate surroundings. Gradually, the children are introduced to the world that extends beyond their own locality, at the same time learning important skills such as map reading and knowing how to describe the landscape.  Local field trips support and enhance this work.

In History we provide a high-quality history education to help pupils gain a coherent knowledge and understanding of Britain’s past and that of the wider world. This inspires pupils’ curiosity to know more about the past and the impact on present day.
