The Elm Park curriculum aims to inspire and enrich children’s learning experiences whilst ensuring high achievement across the whole National Curriculum. Children learn in different ways and as such, we believe it is important that our curriculum aims to engage children in a creative and experiential manner, and that our children are challenged to aim high and demonstrate their understanding in a variety of ways .
In an energetic and fast-changing world, we endeavour to ensure that our children develop skills for their life-long learning journey through meaningful and fun activities. Our curriculum is organised around themes, each with a focus on a particular subject within the National Curriculum. Where practical, and of worth, learning in other subjects is linked to the main theme in order to deepen our children’s knowledge and understanding.
Following the publication of the new National Curriculum in 2014, our curriculum subject overviews detail the skills and knowledge that the children will learn during their time at primary school. These can be found below. From these documents, our teaching team plan units of learning. These are summarised in the form of topic webs which we will publish as they become available. The best place to see the results of our curriculum is on our celebration blog or by dropping in to our class sharing assemblies where our children will tell you all about it!
