This section of the website explains what we teach in each year group and gives a flavour of the content of our Curriculum. Follow us on twitter to see the excitment as it happens!
We use the National Curriculum as the definitive guide to the content of the curriculum. We strive for excellence at all times, aiming to inspire and motivate all children through the way in which we teach.
We teach all National Curriculum statutory subjects – English, Maths, Science, ICT, History, Geography, Art, Design Technology, PE and Music + Religious Education. In addition, we teach Personal Social and Health Education (PSHE) and French throughout the school.
We use nationally produced and agreed resources to support our teaching of English and Maths.
We teach ICT skills with the aid of laptops and ipads.
PE is taught each week by our class teachers and sports coaches in years 3 and 4. We also have extra provision within school clubs. The Sports Premium focuses on developing sports provision in schools, providing extra training for teachers and enabling them to work alongside sports coaches. We are members of the North West Leicestershire School Sports Partnership which gives all of our children the opportunity to take part in a variety of competitions and festivals.
We have reviewed and revised our approach to curriculum planning during recent years, moving away from teaching through subject areas, and moving towards a more holistic and creative approach to learning and teaching.
Whilst some lessons in Maths and Literacy continue to concentrate on these particular subject areas, many other lessons are now planned around themes and topics which cover more than one curriculum subject. Children find more meaning to the learning process in this way and they are motivated by this approach.
Teachers have worked hard to plan very carefully so that all areas of the National Curriculum are taught at the appropriate level in each year group.
More details on individual teams' current curriculum coverage is located on the Classes and Teams section.
