Curriculum

Helping your child to enjoy and achieve

Introduction

We want all our children to experience success and enjoy their learning whilst at Woodthorpe C of E Primary School. We aim to achieve this through high standards of learning and teaching within a happy, structured and caring environment. The skills of true thinking (reasoning, creativity, judgement and memorisation) allow individuals to grow intellectually. Our children are given the chance to perform these mental operations at an appropriate level for their development, in accordance with the National Curriculum. Through a variety of teaching methods and strategies, we aim to instil children with an enthusiasm for learning and prepare them for future school life.

Teaching methods, ranging from whole class to individual personalised programmes of study are chosen, as appropriate, to meet the task or skill being focused upon. During the course of the year, the children will encounter a range of teaching methods. They will mainly be taught by their own class teacher, although we do use other teachers in some areas, enabling us to best use the individual expertise of teaching staff. Our creative curriculum strives to ensure breadth and balance in learning. In fact, children learn faster and more effectively when skills and concepts are linked between subjects at the same time. We plan our topics carefully so continuity and progression are smooth and aid development.
