We plan and deliver an exciting integrated Connected Curriculum.

Our Connected Curriculum is a structured framework of half termly themed Learning Units for each primary school year group. It covers Foundation subjects, RE and Science and is fully mapped to cover the National Curriculum requirements.

This approach allows teachers to be creative whilst providing them with the support and framework that is needed for a consistently delivered and planned whole-school curriculum. This ensures that the National Curriculum is being covered and that our learners and teachers go home every day excited and buzzing about their day.

Autumn Term - Castles, Kings and Queens

This half term we will be learning about famous kings and queens from the past. We will study family trees to determine who will be our next monarch. We will also briefly study castles learn why they were built on hills and what castle life was like. We may even visit a real castle to explore the features for ourselves. Please keep an eye out for photos of our visit.

In English we will learn to write our own royal stories and will even write a letter to the Queen. I wonder if we will get a reply?

For Maths we will focus on place value, addition and subtraction.
