The National Curriculum was relaunched in the 2014/15 academic year. At Stukeley, we identified areas of specific interest and expertise in order to begin building our own content. We plan from termly ‘themes’ that have allowed us to link the different curriculum areas to each other and, as a result, increase children’s enthusiasm, enjoyment and ‘effectiveness’ of learning. The aim of this is to enhance learning by teaching contextually.
Themes are as follows…
Autumn Term- Curtains Up Spring Term-Super Humans Summer Term-Ice- creams and sandcastles
