Four Year Curriculum Plan

We have been doing a tremendous amount of work on making our curriculum more exciting and relevant to the children.  A key part of this is developing the children's independent learning skills and their ability to apply their Literacy and Maths skills across the whole curriculum.

The children learn three themes every year with each one either having a history, geography or science focus.  As a school we follow the system developed by Nicola Powell of Primary Matters where all of the themes revolve around different texts.  Part of the success of this approach is that the focus is initially kept a secret from the children until they have investigated the different clues given and used their thinking skills to determine what it might be.  The children are excited every term by the thought of a new theme.

If, however, you do wish to receive a copy our current four year plan it can be collected from the school office.
