Curriculum at Creswick
‘Confident Learners for Life’
Our Curriculum is a combination of skills and knowledge taught through a topic based approach. In teaching through a topic-based approach, we can meet the needs and interests of our children.
Many cross-curricular links are made to help engage the children. This also aids the retrieval of knowledge and skills taught through different curriculum areas, to help learning reach the long-term memory.
A long-term plan maps out learning for all year groups from EYFS to year 6. This ensures that teachers are building on prior learning and preparing learners for future learning.
Knowledge organisers ensure that skills and knowledge are well sequenced and support progression through the subject. We ensure high level vocabulary is taught and skills are used in a range of contexts.
The enrichment activities, a creative approach to planning topic, and some prior knowledge before teaching new content ensure that all children are engaged, inspired and start their learning from an equal starting point.
Our curriculum intent endeavours to embed the school ethos, with the school values and growth mind set at the heart of our curriculum.
