Implementation

In our Autumn 1 half term, topics are taught under the whole school theme of We Are All Unique’, focussing on issues pertaining to identity and diversity, e.g. similarities and differences between oneself and others; self-identity and belonging, cultural diversity and the nature of prejudice. In our Spring 1 half term, topics are taught under the whole school theme of ‘Freedom & Equality’, focussing on issues pertaining to civil rights and social justice and equity, e.g. what fairness and respect mean; refugees in Britain; how rights for women and children have evolved; the Windrush generation, human migration and how diversity has shaped the modern Britain. In our Summer 2 half term, topics are taught under the whole school theme of Clean Green World’, focussing on issues pertaining to sustainable development and globalisation and interdependence, e.g. recycling, sustainable food, wildlife conservation and the impact of deforestation. Throughout the rest of the year, global themes are taught through other topics and school experiences which also cover the statements from the 2014 National Curriculum.

 

Learning is sequential, with prior knowledge being reviewed then built upon. Links are made between topics and subjects to deepen learning, with key vocabulary being revisited throughout school & taught in different contexts.

 

Our topics are supported by high quality texts to bring them to life, with reading, vocabulary, oracy and practical learning being key to our children achieving their potential. Where subjects cannot be linked with the topic, they are taught discreetly. We ensure that our six core values are woven throughout our curriculum as well as being taught, modelled and celebrated.
