Our Curriculum Aims

Our curriculum aims are taken from the National Curriculum. The aims are an important consideration when we are planning how we are going to deliver the curriculum in order to ensure that our children are being taught the key knowledge and skills that are specific to each subject area.

Our children will:

  • Produce creative work, exploring their ideas and recording their experiences
  • Become proficient in a range of art, craft and design techniques
  • Evaluate and analyse creative works
  • Know about great artists, and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.

As Designers…

Our children will:

  • Build and apply a repertoire of knowledge, understanding and skills in order to design and make high-quality prototypes and products for a wide range of users
  • Critique, evaluate and test their ideas and products and the work of others
  • Understand and apply the principles of nutrition and learn how to cook.

As Geographers

Our children will:

  • Develop contextual knowledge of the location of globally significant places;
  • Understand the processes that give rise to key physical and human geographical features of the world, how these are interdependent and how they bring about spatial variation and change over time
  • Collect, analyse and communicate with a range of data gathered through experiences of fieldwork
  • Interpret a range of sources of geographical information, including maps, diagrams, globes, aerial photographs and Geographical Information Systems (GIS)
  • Communicate geographical information in a variety of ways, including through maps, numerical and quantitative skills and writing at length.

As Historians…

Our children will:

  • Understand the history of Britain as a chronological narrative, from the earliest times to the present day: how people’s lives have shaped this nation and how Britain has influenced and been influenced by the wider world
  • Know and understand significant aspects of the history of the wider world:
  • Understand historical concepts such as continuity and change, cause and consequence, similarity, difference and significance, and use them to make connections, draw contrasts, analyse trends, frame historically-valid questions and create their own structured accounts, including written narratives and analyses
  • Understand the methods of historical enquiry, including how evidence is used rigorously to make historical claims, and discern how and why contrasting arguments and interpretations of the past have been constructed.
  • Gain historical perspective by placing their growing knowledge into different contexts, understanding the connections between local, regional, national and international history; between cultural, economic, military, political, religious and social history; and between short- and long-term timescales.

Our children will:

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
