In September 2020, we will be implementing a new curriculum for Years 1-6.

The year will be split in to three terms:

  • Autumn: DISCOVERERS: The whole school will be Historians and will have their own History topic.
  • Spring: EXPLORERS: The whole school will be Geographers and will have their own Geography topic.
  • Summer:  CREATORS: The whole school will be artists, musicians and designers. Each class will 'take one picture' as a stimulus for their term's work.

INVESTIGATORS: each year group will have their own Science topics and this subject will be taught weekly throughout the year. 

Our mornings will continue with the current structure: Maths No Problem; English; Guided Reading; (Phonics-EYFS/Y1)

We want our curriculum to be:                                       So that our children will be:

  • Memorable                                                                                        Reflective learners
  • Motivating                                                                                         Team workers
  • Inspiring                                                                                             Independent enquirers
  • Thought-provoking                                                                           Creative thinkers
  • Linked to local and world issues                                                      Self managers
  • Relevant to our children                                                                   Effective participants
  • Developing aspirations
