Curriculum

 

Curriculum Overview

 

At Wormholt Park Primary School, we ensure that the curriculum is skills based.

Our skills-based learning provides classroom environments where independence, thinking skills, collaboration and active learning are developed at the same time as knowledge is acquired.

This curriculum aims to deepen children's learning at all levels across a broad and balanced range of learning opportunities. We place great importance on trips and workshops to ensure learning comes to life.

Whilst the teaching and learning of Maths and English is a crucial part of everyday learning, the social, physical, intellectual, emotional and spiritual growth of every child, is also a key part of our skills based curriculum which focuses on transferable skills within learning.

Our Skills Builder projects fully support this approach, with vital skills taught, developed and practised across our broad and balanced curriculum. Please click the link below to find about about the vital skills developed through our Skills Builder projects.

Knowledge Organisers

At Wormholt Park School,  we have developed Knowledge Organisers to support children's learning. 

The Knowledge Organisers present key facts and information on a single page, which give children the ’big picture’  of what they are required to learn in topics taught throughout the academic year. 

The Knowledge Organisers are shared with parents and children at the start of each topic.

Children are encouraged to use them as a tool to develop their subject knowledge.​​ 

Please click on the links in the Topic Map below, to see all the Knowledge Organisers!
