We believe that all children are capable of learning and that through high quality, creative learning opportunities and high expectations all our children will make good progress. We work from the National Curriculum and we plan the curriculum around topics which are current, relevant and meaningful. They provide a context which helps to link the learning together and enable the children to really explore, ask and answer questions and become enthused by what they are learning. We plan 'wow' events to start each topic in order to excite and engage our children from the start. This may take the form of a visit, visitor, role play, investigation or activities that bring the topic to life. We use children's interests and how they have responded to previous topics to plan subsequent ones, when we review our topics each year. This way we ensure we capitalise on what excites and motivates them. We provide active practical, learning opportunities, wherever possible, which allow the children to apply the skills and knowledge they are developing. We provide opportunities for the children to reinforce what they have been learning so that it becomes embedded. We encourage our children to persevere and believe in themselves so that they can tackle challenges, feel safe to take risks necessary to learning and become lifelong learners.
