From September we will be teaching from the new National Curriculum- We will continue to use our themed approach – using all skills from all subjects to make sure that any skills we learn are embedded across our lessons.
Year 6 will continue using the old national curriculum and will be tested in May 2015. Years 3, 4 and 5 will follow the statutory curriculum.
We work closely with our infant colleagues and are currently working on a joint calculation policy.
To successfully deliver the curriculum we have decided, in consultation with our stakeholders, to use specialist teachers to teach the individual subjects in the afternoons. This will allow us to make rapid progress.
Examples of work can be found on our school blog and by clicking on: Our Curriculum Showcase Link Above.
