At Parkgate, we aim for all of our children to be...
This will develop the children’s curiosity
This will capture the interest
This means making it relevant
This will respond to world and national events (current affairs, sport, culture, anniversaries), community and school events.
This includes opportunities for responding to questions and interests of those within the class (individual, group, class)
This will personalise the curriculum to be child centred and community driven
This allows you to organise your own curriculum for your class (e.g. when themes are taught, when experiences are organised)
Themes will be organised based on how long the learning takes, across a day, number of days, weeks, half term (go with the needs and interests of the class)
This includes a trip to enhance the learning, a visitor to give greater knowledge, using the wider school environment, working with the local community, using a range of technology and access to specialised resources.
This means developing knowledge across all curriculum subjects
This means learning transferable skills across all curriculum subjects
This means making progress
