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 areas of learning, known to the children as topics, which we deliver.  Adjacent to this page you will some  further details of teachers' planning.

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 in their life cycles topic. They focus on art and photography, as well as some digital mapping work for geography.   Visit https://www.sayers-croft.org.uk for more details

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.
