Our ‘Creative Challenge Curriculum’ encompasses a skills based approach to learning through Science, Geography, History, Art and Design Technology. Each topic is carefully planned to ensure the progression of key skills across the school from Year 1 to Year 6. Cross curricular links are very important and there are opportunities for English and Maths activities planned into our themes.
Curriculum experiences may provide the children with a ‘hook’ to initiate a topic or theme or visitors that further enhance the children’s knowledge and awareness of the topic. By seeing and doing the children are able to articulate and absorb the knowledge and skills that are imparted to them. We enable our pupils to succeed through challenging tasks and activities that encourage them to take risks. We develop their ability to think independently, enabling them to transfer their learning to all aspects of their life; preparing them for the future. We actively teach the skills needed to be a successful learner and reward these regularly.
