Through our topic curriculum, we are passionate about pupils having a curiosity and fascination about the world and the people in it. We inspire our children to be curious about the past, gaining a secure knowledge of Britain’s past and that of the wider world, comparing different civilisations and appreciating the diversity of societies as well as understanding their own identity. Pupils gain an understanding of the local area and how that compares across the world, whilst also gaining a secure understanding of key geographical terms and concepts. Art skills are taught explicitly during the final term of each year but understanding and application is weaved throughout the topic curriculum. Knowledge organisers are used successfully to develop key learning across the school. Our Topic places a focus on Geography and History as we explore different themes together.
Teacher assessments are continuous during LIVE TAUGHT lessons, marking of coursework and assignments and summative tests.
Homework will be given at the end of each half term in the form of a project linked to our ‘Theme’.
Parents have 24 /7 access to all of their children’s work. Additionally, the school holds 3 parent consultations per year – one each term.
Miss. Aiken is an experienced and dedicated teacher who is very friendly and approachable. She enjoys her teaching and this really shows in lessons. Children enjoy their lessons and achieve exceptionally high test results.
