Our Key Stage 1 and 2 Curriculum
From Year 1 to Year 6 pupils follow a topic based curriculum which incorporates all National Curriculum subjects. Some aspects of the curriculum are delivered daily, weekly, ½ termly or during special themed weeks (Science Week, Art and Maths Week)
Our curriculum is enhanced and supported by:
a creative, dynamic and interactive learning and teaching environment to support and challenge individual learning;
Outdoor environment and local community use;
A formal timetabled programme of lessons which are based on the National Curriculum;
Extra-curricular activities such as year group drama productions, music and instrumental lessons, sports opportunities etc;
Outside educational visits and trips to enrich subjects and topics, such as visits to museums and art galleries, the local market, Suntrap etc;
Outside speakers and visitors in school for example parents, School Nurse, Community Police Officer etc;
More information about our curriculum and topics is shared with parents and carers through:
½ termly letters to parents;
School website on Year Group and Subject pages;
Invitations to exhibitions, workshops and displays in school;
The school blog and school twitter @hmprimary;
We are committed to creating learning and a curriculum which is inclusive and relevant to our pupils and community and links are made though subjects as part of our creative topic based curriculum.
Mathematics and English are taught as discreet subjects and link to the class topic where appropriate. Phonics, spelling and reading are also taught as discreet subjects across the school.
