Concentrating on learning not subjects
Our personalised approach to learning encourages personal development and promotes high standards while keeping our curriculum broad and exciting. Our aim is to enable children to use and apply their essential literacy, maths and computing skills confidently in the classroom, and in everyday life.
It might sound odd, but we concentrate on the learning and not on the subjects. We know that the best learning happens when connections are made between subjects, and when children are excited and motivated, so we teach English, Maths and Computing in a way that weaves it into a broader range of subjects. When looking at the Vikings, for example, your child may be studying what looks to you like history, but as part of this topic they will be developing their reading, writing and IT skills.
We call these topics ‘big questions’. They encourage pupils to approach subjects from different angles, across disciplines and learning styles. More importantly they help our children to produce some exciting and innovative work.
