Welcome to Hady Primary School
At Hady our curriculum is innovative, rich and varied. It celebrates all skills and subjects in a cross curricular style with English and Mathematics as the foundation. Our curriculum immerses children in first and second hand experiences that enables them to draw on prior learning to consolidate and expand their conceptual thinking. It is a curriculum that is reactive to current occurrences in the community and the wider world.
We use the mastery approach in our English teaching at Hady and seek to develop their enjoyment of the written and spoken language. We believe that the children should read and write creatively by studying grammar, punctuation and spelling which supports reading for pleasure; reading for purpose and leading into a love of writing.
We believe that pupil’s text development is enhanced through an active, direct and challenging approach to texts of all kinds. Our structure seeks to combine a variety of creative and stimulating opportunities.
We also deliver a mastery approach in maths. Basic skills and knowledge are given paramount importance and underpins all learning. We believe that to become true mathematician children need to be actively involved in the process of mathematical enquiry. We seek to develop young mathematicians through a skills and application approach. We believe that all children should engage and apply maths using the correct terminology by the time children leave Year 6.
We are very proud to offer 1 hour a week of French from FS2 (Reception) to Yr6 which culminates in a residential opportunity to France for Yr6 pupils.
All children from reception to yr6 engage in an afternoon of activities, known as ’50 things’. This experience gives the pupils the opportunity to try different skills or hobbies e.g. touch typing; learning sign language; different arts and crafts, making mud pies and dens!
The application of our curriculum is a powerful tool, which through our collaborative approach and continuous monitoring and evaluation enhances children’s knowledge and understanding. To maximise all opportunities underpinning our delivery is the 5 R’s (a growth mind-set principle) which includes resilience, responsibility, resourcefulness, reflectiveness and readiness. Children are actively involved in improving their learning and identifying their strengths and weaknesses through effective marking and feedback
