Key Skills

To ensure progression our curriculum is underpinned by key skills. These build on one another as our children move through the school.

The Creative Curriculum

In order to make the children’s experience more involving we work in phases, enabling the year groups to pool experiences.

Half Termly Themes

Half-termly themes are detailed on information sheets which we share with children and parents prior to beginning the topic. This allows children and parents to research and carry out pre-learning.

An important aspect of our curriculum delivery is to have a ‘memorable experience’, a visit or visitor, or a special experience day on which the book can ‘hook’ their learning.
