About our curriculum
We follow a long term plan, devised in school and based on the National Curriculum. We teach a two-year cycle of topics and themes and year groups work together to plan, teach and assess these in phases - EYFS (Reception), KS1 (Y1 & Y2), LKS2 (Y3 & Y4), UKS2 (Y5 & Y6).
Whilst we do teach a range of subjects, they are not often taught in isolation. We group key knowledge and skills in our themes and base our learning aroung real experiences for children - including going on trips to having visitors in school to talk to us. For example, when studying Vikings, we visit the Jorvik Museum, when learning about plants we go to Harlow Carr Gardens, when learning about Islam we invite a muslim teacher to talk to us about their faith, when learning about politics we go to the Houses of Parliament and the council chambers.
On these pages you can see what we teach in each year group across both cycles A and B. Under the subject headings, there are some useful resources, links, photos and further information.
