The school uses a cross-curricular approach to teaching and learning.  This means that skills, knowledge and understanding across a range of subjects are brought together and form a topic.  Within the topic, children are able to practise and apply their reading, maths and English skills in other subject areas.

Our ‘Long Term Plans’ show each year group’s overview of topics and curriculum learning.

Our ‘Topic Maps’ show each year group’s half termly areas of learning.  They are led by enquiry questions posed by the pupils to determine what they already know about the topic, what they would like to know and what they have learned.  The topic maps detail the class novel, writing and maths across the curriculum and WOW experiences.  These could include a class trip, a visitor to school or a celebration of learning event
