Our Curriculum

We have a topic-based curriculum. Each half term we have a main theme or topic in each year group, and a lot of the children's learning hangs on this single main theme. We believe that children learn best when their learning is structured in this way - for a number of weeks they engage with a particular subject and become 'experts' in a particular piece of learning.

We also believe that children's learning should be fun. Within each topic we try to plan as many exciting activities as possible, and most topics are supported by trips and visitors.

Sometimes, because we are a small school, we come together as a staff and plan a piece of learning as a whole school - this means that every class takes a single starting point, and then every child in the school does learning activities from the same starting point. We generate a lot of excitement about a single topic in this way. This is the fourth year of running a whole school topic and during the Spring term we will be using the Power of Reading scheme of work to look at various books.

You'll find more detailed information in our  Curriculum Statement and in our Curriculum Map Overview 17-18
