Learning in our Creative Curriculum

Our creative curriculum is cross curricular and taught through topic sessions.

There are some subjects that are best taught independently subjects such as R.E and Music, however links will made wherever possible. Children experience what it is like to think and act like a historian, scientist, engineer or a mathematician. In the classroom there is increased emphasis on independent learning through decision-making, problem solving, investigation and exploration.   

Children are actively:                                    

  • exploring, wondering and questioning
  • experimenting and playing with possibilities
  • researching and seeking information
  • collecting data and reporting findings
  • clarifying existing ideas
  • deepening understanding through the application of a concept or rule
  • making and testing theories
  • making predictions and acting purposefully to see what happens and elaborating on solutions to problems. 

Approach

Our curriculum reflects the school’s the diversity within our classrooms and as well as the wider school community and beyond. Within classes we vary children working in mixed or similar ability groups, in pairs or alone.

We have developed our use of continuous provision throughout ALL year groups whereby children are encouraged to have self-directed time within the classroom to explore independent learning, a phrase which we use with the children to focus their chosen activities.

Shared Learning

At the beginning of each year parents will be given information about the National expectations for each year group.  Alongside this, each term, parents will be given information about the topic children will be learning about that half term and the key learning objectives covered.
