Our curriculum is designed to build a schema by developing knowledge and vocabulary through a range of key experiences and deliberate practice. Some of the content is subject specific, whilst other content is combined in a cross-curricular approach. To limit the cognitive load, our curriculum builds schemas in pupils’ long-term memory to draw upon. This is achieved by using spaced retrieval practice.
The starting point for our curriculum is the 2014 Primary National Curriculum. We also use Cornerstones Curriculum as a supportive tool to help us plan a creative and thematic approach to learning.
Take a look at our Long Term Planning grid below to see how we have mapped out the provision. For further details, please visit the Knowledge Organisers for each term.
