Curriculum Overview

We believe that it is essential that learning is contextualised and that children have the opportunity to transfer their learning to different subject areas. Knowledge, concepts and skills need to be applied across a range of subjects as this facilitates comprehension. For this reason we follow a thematic approach to our curriculum planning with history, geography and science providing context for our English lessons.

Using the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) document and National Curriculum as the minimum requirement, we have mapped out six topics per year group:

In EYFS we ensure a balance of ‘Understanding the world’, ‘Expressive arts and design’ and literature topics.

 In Year 1 two are history led, one geography led, one literature led and two science led.

In Year 2 one is history led, two geography led, one literature led and two science led.

In Key Stage 1 (KS1) computing, art and DT are linked to the topics where possible. Where science is not the lead subject it is taught discretely, as are maths, music, P.S.H.E, P.E. and R.E.
