Our curriculum is a skills based curriculum that aims to deepen children’s learning at all levels across a broad and balanced range of learning opportunities. Creativity and a focus on final products and outcomes is an important part of our curriculum design. For example our children within year two study The Great Fire of London and undertake a range of learning opportunities in order to deepen their knowledge and understanding of London at this time. Children enjoy visiting The Tudor House Museum and interrogating a range of sources in order to produce a strong portfolio of knowledge which can be applied. The production of Tudor Houses as a product of the design technology project was a wonderful finale to their learning in this area. Whilst our Year 6 children explore many areas, from detailed analysis of Narnia, through to the depths of a dangerous king in Macbeth.
Home reading and the impact that engaged parents have on their child's learning is vital to all children's progress and attainment. Actively engaged parents can accelerate their child's learning by over a year (Hattie). To this end we encourage and track our children's reading on a weekly basis.
