Our Learning

We believe that learning should be fun, hands-on, delivered in a variety of ways to meet all children's needs and should be challenging but supported. Each unit of learning in our curriculum is supplemented and enhanced by a trip or a visitor or an experience. We've recently had lambs in to add to our Reception children's knowledge of the life cycle, we've visited the Bure Valley Railway to support the theme of transport in History and we've been to Crucial Crew to help our children know how to keep themselves safe. 

We wrote our curriculum to meet our children's needs, after analysing what these were, and have built our children's day around careful and precise teaching of exactly the next steps that they are ready for in their English and Maths skills, then designed our History, Geography, Science, RE, Art and DT to meet our children's needs, broaden their experiences and knowledge and build on all they've learned before. We've carefully chosen schemes of work to support their PE, Music, DT, Computing and PRSHE . 

We assess how well our children have progressed using entry and exit quizzes in the subjects we've written (to start with) and use the assessments from the schemes. We gather the children's views after each unit of learning, which then feeds into our future planning. 

If you have any comments on our units of learning, or indeed can offer any expertise or anything that you could bring in to share with the children, we'd love to hear from you via the school office. Many thanks!
