Our topics are driven by the humanities subjects: PSHE, history, geography and Global Citizenship. Topics are half termly. Our Global Citizenship curriculum is comprised of three whole school themes: 'We Are All Unique', 'Freedom and Equality' and 'Clean Green World'. Whole class reading is linked with our topics as well as focusses for writing. It is our belief that this synergy creates a greater depth of knowledge which fuels better quality writing. 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.
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.
Subjects are taught discreetly with cross-curricular links made when appropriate. We ensure that our six core values are woven throughout our curriculum as well as being taught, modelled and celebrated.
Our yearly topic overview can be viewed via the link below. You can also follow the link to the second document which is an overview of how each subject is taught in Early Years. Information about each specific subject can be viewed in our 'Subjects' pages where you can find information regarding the intent, implementation and impact of each subject. Our 'subject on a page' documents will provide you with detailed information such as the schemes we use; how subjects are assessed; lesson timetabling and sequencing; and how children are supported.
