At St John’s we follow the National Curriculum throughout the school in EYFS, KS1 and KS2. Developing children’s literacy, numeracy and scientific skills is central to our planning and teaching. We then apply these skills across the curriculum finding cross- curricular links where possible.
We aim for children to learn in meaningful contexts, independently and collaboratively. We encourage creativity and support the children in expressing themselves, in all areas of the curriculum, to develop their confidence and foster cooperation. Our curriculum is designed in terms of experiences and activities that will promote the continued growth of each child through the acquisition of knowledge, concepts and key skills.
Each class studies a different topic each half term, often linked to a key text or based around Science or Humanities themes. These themes can be found on our Long Term Plans.
