Our curriculum is delivered in a cross curricular style by delivering reading and writing through a topic, usually book base, whilst also developing key skills across the foundation subjects. It is engaging, exciting and meaningful. It is a curriculum that is enriched with real life activities and supported by visits and visitors. A curriculum that is reactive to current occurrences in the community and the wider world. French is taught fromYr1 to Yr6 for an hour a week and all children engage in an afternoon of activities, known as ’50 things’ which gives pupils opportunities to experience different skills from touch typing; learning sign language; different arts and crafts to making mud pies and dens!
We develop the 5 R’s including resilience, responsibility, resourcefulness, reflectiveness and readiness. Children know their own targets and are actively involved in improving their learning and identifying their strengths and weaknesses through effective marking and feedback
