2014 saw the implementation of the new National Curriculum. This sets out what we must teach and what children should learn in English, Maths, Science, History, Geography, Computing, DT, Art, Music and PE. For RE we use the Blackburn Diocesan syllabus which includes teaching Christianity and other faiths. Below is our curriculum overview for 2019/20. We update this half termly. We use a themed approach and where subjects do not fit the theme we teach them separately. Some themes have a basis in Science, some in History etc. We ensure that over the course of the year the National Curriculum requirements for each year group have been delivered. You can find more information about each topic by clicking on the name. This will take you to the topic web that shows the objectives and the key skills that the children will learn during the topic. These will be available a short time before being taught as we respond to the children’s needs and interests.
In English, we follow the Lancashire units of work, in order to provide rich reading and writing opportunities and outcomes for the children. In maths we also follow the Lancashire scheme. The Lancashire planning is based upon the National Curriculum ensuring that we fully cover the requirements.
We also want to provide enrichment to the curriculum over and above the expected, in order to give the children the skills and experiences they need in order to thrive in the world. To this end, we aim to give the children a range of experiences that “rescue us from the ordinary!” Please click the following link to find out more! Lifeboat List
