The curriculum is organised on a whole school strand approach based around a theme/topic which changes every half term and is cross curricular in approach. This is based on a 2 year rolling cycle across each phase of school. Each of our strands will have a ‘Learning Hooks' which take place across the half term. This is a carefully planned enrichment event to promote engagement and act as a stimulus for each new strand.
Each year group chose a ‘Big Question’ to reflect the main theme of the strand, these act as the learning focus. Preparation is carried out to establish what is known and what the children would like to find out.
The strand approach and 'Big Questions' cover the Art, Design and the Humanities. Wherever possible a cross curricular approach is taken to include Religious Education, Computing and E Safety, Music and links to Literacy and Numeracy.
Spanish, Music, PSHE and PE are taught as discrete subjects across the school. We also teach Science as a discrete subject, however links are made where possible and where they have value.
