Curriculum Autumn 2017

Welcome to our Autumn 2017 Curriculum Plan. All of our plans are based on the National Curriculum as well as our own knowledge of what local children need to know and understand about their own area. We also build in key Values as part of our overall curriculum, to ensure that the children know and understand how to act and behave in society upholding shared morals and challenging inequality in all its forms.

As plans are written and submitted to the Senior Leadership Team, they will then be uploaded onto this page as hyperlinks. Any theme titles displayed in red should be hyperlinks. Foundation Subjects such as History and Geography are taught in blocks of weeks, so please be aware that any theme may be taught at any point during the whole term.

The Early Years Curriculum for Nursery and Reception are based on the children’s own ideas and staff ensure coverage of the Early Years Framework outcomes. Therefore topics cannot be shared on this page but will be shared each week through newsletters.
