Welcome

Curriculum

Our Challenge Curiculum encourages a climate for young people to explore how to apply their knowledge in original ways and with purpose. We have recently revised the our curriculum to ensure that standards in writing are being improved by using exciting literature through science. The units ensure that there is a huge focus on working scientifically as well as dealing with the specific science knowledge for a particular year group.

 

For example, in Year 4 the use of excellent quality text like 'The incredible book-eating boy' is central to the science unit dealing with the digestive system. In Year 3, the excellent book 'The street beneath my feet' is central to the science unit on 'rocks'.


The units help teachers to improve pupils' writing through science but still hold on to the statutory requirement for science and ensures that pupils' grammar, punctuation and vocabulary is being challenged. 

Principles
We are committed to providing quality and excellence through an exciting, stimulating environment that stretches and develops the child as a whole and to provide an education which will develop social skills and encourage children to become more active citizens within the school community and beyond. 

Tell me and I forget,
Show me and I remember,
Involve me and I understand.
