Curriculum Overview

There are two main ways that we deliver the curriculum. The first being a subject based approach, and the other through cross-curricular links.

Each class has an annual Curriculum Overview as seen below.

Topic and Cross-curricular

Subjects are often topic based and cross-curricular. Special days or weeks where the emphasis is on developing curriculum strengths happen each half term. For example, a Science, History, or Art Week, or Design and Technology Day ending in a ‘House Competition’ help the children develop and share their skills. You will receive a class information sheet at the beginning of each term detailing the proposed learning for the term ahead. You will also receive a copy of your child’s timetable. 

Curriculum Planning

Curriculum planning is done through Subject Curriculum Maps (long term planning), Subject Medium Term Plans (half-termly) and Subject Weekly Plans. All weekly plans are sent to the Head Teacher at the start of each week. English and Mathematics Planning is divided into a plan for every day of the week. 

Subject Curriculum Maps 

These can be accessed on the subject pages.
