Curriculum Frameworks

Our curriculum is planned in themes on a two-yearly rolling programme within each phase – KS1, Years 3 & 4 and Years 5 & 6. Topics are chosen to capture the interests and imaginations of our children. Themes include Ice Ice Baby; Paws, Claws, Leaves and Whiskers; Under the Canopy, Hakuna Matata as well as many more exciting topics.  Each theme is introduced through a ‘hook’ which is designed to engage children in their learning, and finishes with final outcomes to celebrate all that has been achieved. Skills-based learning is developed by linking subjects such as history, geography, art, design technology and music to the topic being studying. This allows children to make purposeful links in their learning. We also use every opportunity to make further links through reading, writing, maths, science and computing where relevant. PE and RE are often taught as discreet subjects to allow coverage of the main objectives and age appropriate skill development.
