In September 2014 all schools implemented the New National Curriculum. We follow ‘Dimensions’ which includes all the new Primary National Curriculum 2014 requirements.
We also follow the White Rose Mastery approach for Mathematics/Numeracy.
Dimensions Creative Curriculum offers innovative ideas and practical resources that will help us to continue to inspire our children and develop their love of learning.
By adopting the Dimensions approach, we are laying solid foundations for creative teaching and learning based on effective principles and processes.
We plan exciting cross-curricular topics together and opportunities to bring both staff and children together for ‘the love of learning’.
The Rolling Programmes above show outlines of the themes over the years with hooks to engage our children. But of course we need to allow for spontaneity and moments of awe and wonder that make learning relevant and personal e.g. the birth of a baby, the arrival of snow and watching the miracle of an ugly grub like creature turn into a beautiful butterfly.
Our children need to explore their senses, learn to take risks in a safe environment and most importantly enjoy being a child.
