What does our curriculum look like?

Each new theme of curriculum is chosen with the children's interests and views in mind, and is carefully chosen by the teacher with the class needs at the forefront. Sometimes a theme will run across the whole school, such at designing, creating and running  The Rio Carnival 2016, at others it is a class theme. 

Once a theme has been created, we then spend time creating the curriculum 'hook' with the children. This hook becomes the key motivator for them and pulls them through a memorable unit of work with a clear end event or product to aim for.

Children are immersed in a range of learning scenarios; have regular opportunities to meet 'real life ' practitioners and take part in leading  and making important decisions. There is a  child-centred approach from start to finish.

All National Curriculum subjects are woven carefully into these themes, or taught discretely where appropriate, as are the Suckley Skills and RE curriculum.

 

Here is a flavour of the themes that we are continually developing:
