Programmes of Study

We broadly follow the National Curriculum for History, Art, Geography, Computing, Music, Geography, Design Technology and Physical Education.

Frameworks for Learning.Teachers plan meticulously for each term for each subject.  Below you will find an overview of the topics we deliver.  Adjacent to this page you will some details of teachers' planning, which are outlines of the learning objectives and skills taught in subjects through those  topics.

Topic Design: Our teachers have created a broad and diverse curriculum which intertwines learning across curriculum areas, which can be exemplified by the year five autumn topics:

In October each year, the children spend two nights at Sayer's Croft Outdoor Education Centre. Prior to going on the trip, the children spend time in our own wildlife area, looking at plants and animals. Their topic is called, 'Impressions of a Meadow' and they focus on art and photography, as well as some digital mapping work for geography.  

When the children arrive at Sayer's Croft, they enjoy sessions of pond dipping and they identify and classify animals and plants they find. They also carry out a detailed river study for geography. When they return to school, they have plenty of experiences ready to inspire their writing and their art.

   

Above: images from a recent  day spent by our arts ambassadors at a local secondary school. They worked with children from across other schools and produced these wonderful Tiki masks.

Our Topic Framework, through which most subjects are delivered, could be described as an exciting range of challenging tasks designed to make children think independently and work creatively. Termly, parents receive extra curriculum information. If you would like more information, please contact the school office.
