At Elm Tree we follow and rich and varied curriculum that allows children to gain key skills and knowledge whilst exploring a wide range of topics .Learning is organised into themes, with each theme usually lasting for half a term. Wherever possible, each curriculum subject is then linked to the current theme, including Science, DT, History, Geography, RE, PE, Music and Art. We find that this has a motivational affect on children, allowing them to study the topic from all angles and to get utterly absorbed in their learning. Class-based learning is often supported by trips, visitors, outdoor learning and themed days to bring learning alive for the children. Computing is taught as both a discrete subject, where we equip children with the skills they need, and is used as an integral learning tool across the curriculum.
The National Curriculum for Key Stage 1 and 2 can be found following the link below:
