Curriculum Information

What is the Curriculum like at Greenvale?

The Curriculum is a title used to group the different learning that will be taking place in schools.  Whilst schools must ensure that there is coverage of the curriculum objectives, it is for each school to decide on how they will go about meeting these objectives.

Topic Work

In Year 1-6, foundation subjects (including Science, History, Geography, Music, Art and D.T. are grouped into topics in keeping with the National Curriculum programme of study.  Each topic incorporates a 'Big Question' which requires the children to look deeper, using their recently acquired knowledge to answer questions that relate to the world around them.  Planning for each topic incorporates many aspects specific to our school as well as exploiting links to Forest School, Food Growing and The ARC .

Our Reception cohort also follow a themed curriculum, making links to the EYFS curriculum.  Topics include: Celebrations, Superheroes and Traditional Tales.
