Teaching & Learning

Years 1 – 6

This year we are revising our approach to the curriculum. Learning can be defined as an alteration to long term memory. We are developing schemes of work that are designed to:

  • Broaden your child’s knowledge base
  • Enrich your child’s use of vocabulary and their understanding of complex texts
  • Provide your child with the opportunity to repeatedly revisit key concepts across all areas of the curriculum

We believe a child needs knowledge in order to think. Our curriculum is designed to provide the knowledge your child needs to understand key concepts. The curriculum is set out in two year cycles. The first year of each cycle focuses on key vocabulary and basic knowledge. The second year focuses on advancing and deepening your child’s understanding of key concepts.
