We are proud of our curriculum at Long Buckby Junior School.
The children learn three themes every year with each one either having a history or geography 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.
