Our School Curriculum
At Threshfield Primary School, we provide a broad and balanced curriculum which:
- promotes spiritual, moral, social, cultural, mental and physical development
- promotes an understanding of British Values
- prepares children for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
- The National Curriculum forms the basis of our school curriculum and provides our children with an introduction to the essential knowledge that they need for life. It provides an outline of core, statutory knowledge around which our teachers develop exciting and stimulating lessons to promote the development of the children's knowledge, understanding and skills.
Our Reception children follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.
In Key Stages 1 and 2 the statutory subjects that all pupils study are English, maths, science, art and design, computing, design and technology, geography, history, music, physical education and religious education. Whilst a language is compulsory in Key Stage 2, the children learn French throughout both Key Stage 1 and 2. Making unusual sounds comes naturally to young children so we believe the sooner they start learning foreign languages the better! We also make provision for Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE). For more details about the content of our PSHE scheme of work and also the Sex and Relarelationships scheme, please see the attachements below.
In our school, English and mathematics lessons are taught daily throughout reception and Key Stages 1 and 2. The other subjects are then taught as much as possible in a creative cross-curricular thematic approach, though separately if more appropriate. We aim to make learning as exciting, interesting and as much fun as possible. We encourage enquiry and research skills and enrich topics with visits and visitors whenever we can.
Please see the individual class pages for details of the topics being taught each term.
