The school have recently had a major overhaul of the long term plans to ensure we deliver a broad and balanced curriculum to promote preparation for and an appreciation of life in modern Britain; to develop a curriculum that motivates, engages and inspires pupils, makes explicit cross curricular links and gives pupils opportunities to apply their knowledge in a wide variety of ways.
This is achieved through the implementation of a thematic curriculum ‘structure’ across the school:
- Termly themed class focus.
- Beginning of theme focus, review/ mind map what children already know and what they want to know.
- Immersion / launch event; visit, visitor, special event
- Final ‘product; presentation or event planned and delivered by pupils to demonstrate and showcase what they have learned.
Sometimes subjects may need to be treated separately, especially at KS2, when they are ongoing throughout the year e.g. Science and Modern Foreign Languages (Spanish) and P.E.
