Long Term Plans

 

 

Exciting projects

Our curriculum immerses children in exciting projects with authentic outcomes. They are challenged to work creatively, whilst deepening their knowledge and understanding through highly engaging and memorable experiences.

Project based learning

  • The project based learning connects to real world and authentic problems and issues; it is framed around an inquiry process and leads children to investigate important ideas and questions.
  • The curriculum is designed to allow children to engage in real life world projects and instilla desire to produce beautiful work.

Concepts

At the beginning of the project we identify the concepts which we would like to explore and which will make the connections between the different subjects. We will then create an enquiry question which frames the concepts.

Core Skills

At the heart of the curriculum are core skillsand they are grouped into:

The year is split into three terms:

1. Discover

 

The theme of the Autumn term is ‘Discover’.This has a History focus and throughout school the children engage in projects designed to answer a BIG question.

How can we let people know about the past?

 

2. Explore

 

The theme of the Spring term is ‘Explore’ .This has a geography focus and challenges the children to find out how they can make the world a better place.

From homelessness to sustainability, conservation to the refugee crisis, our children are engaged in learning that changes their outlook on the world and challenges them to make a difference.

 

3. Create

Art, design, dance and drama are used across the curriculum, but with our summer term, the theme of ‘Create’ has the arts as a focus.

Our create projects allow children to develop their skills in a range of different media leading to incredible outcomes.

English:

  • Children’s English work is linked to the projects.
