Key Stage 1 and 2 Curriculum


Whilst guided by the National Curriculum programmes of study and skills, and alongside carefully planned literacy and mathematics lessons, we plan a themed approach to learning using children's own inquiry skills as a starting point. Each class takes our whole school topic and makes it their own with teachers incorporating the necessary age appropriate skills from across as many subject areas as appropriate.


If something sparks children's interest they are able to follow it in depth.


This integrated approach ensures that the children enjoy and take ownership of their learning and are able to transfer skills to a variety of contexts. Wherever possible, we use first hand experiences, visits and visitors as a stimulus for learning and to plug any experience gaps.

Key Stage 2 Medium Term Plans


Medium term plans are compiled using a themed approach to learning. On introducing the new whole school topic, teachers work with the children to determine what the children would like to find out. This forms the starting point for each topic.
