As a school we strive to provide a welcoming community environment where all children are nurtured, respected, included, inspired and motivated to learn to help them to achieve their full potential. Consequently, we have developed a curriculum to ensure it is relevant, progressive, balanced and equips the children with the skills they need to meet all of life’s challenges.
Each year group studies four topics per year and each topic has a stunning start and a fabulous finish. The stunning starts include: visits, exciting activity days and special visitors to inspire the children and encourage them to ask questions about their new topics. To end each topic, the fabulous finishes include: special performances by the children, galleries to showcase the children’s work and exciting adventures, all of which we hope parents and carers can participate in.
|Topic 1||Topic 2||Topic 3||Topic 4|
|Year 3||Scrapheap Challenge||H2 Woah||Hakuna Mutata||I do like to be beside the Seaside|
|Year 4||Amazia||Epic Empires||The Great Exhibition||All the Fun of the Fair|
|Year 5||Star Trekking||Eureka||Dragon Dynasty||Circles of Life|
