The Curriculum Offer at Crowle
Our vision of "Caring. Confident and Committed to Learning" umbrellas everything we do, and say.
We then have our Curriculum "Intent, Implement and Impact" statement - which underpins every lesson we teach (see below).
Next we created a two year rolling programme, based on our mixed aged classes at Crowle.
We then have sequential learning for all subjects, ensuring children develop their knowledge skills and understanding across all subjects.
However, we also offer children more than just what the curriculum suggests - offering children roles and responsibilities in the school, clubs, trips, experiences, sporting events, guest speakers etc.
Please see our curriculum offer (and more!) below:
The Curriculum at Crowle CE First School
We recognise the importance of all areas of the curriculum. Therefore, we plan a broad and balanced curriculum that enables children to develop their knowledge, skills and understanding in every lesson they partake in. We work hard for connections to be developed across the curriculum, for children to recognise links across subjects and to develop their understanding of the greater world in which we live.
The rationale behind our curriculum is as follows:
- Allow children to make connections across their learning and the curriculum.
- Systematic approach to teaching vocabulary to all children.
- Planning succinctly for the knowledge, skills and understanding we want the children to learn in each specific topic.
- Offer children the ability to talk about their learning, through questions asked that allows them to demonstrate their understanding.
- Fewer topics so children can now learn more in depth in each individual topic.
- Plan for the knowledge, skills and understanding that the children will gain from each topic.
- Plan vocabulary that the children will be taught, based on three tiers, so that all children’s vocabulary is being extended.
- Teachers support as many connections to be made across the curriculum, so teaching is not seen as stand alone.
- Greater connections being made for children to see how the curriculum is interwoven.
- Greater vocabulary being planned for.
- Children able to talk about their learning, in a way that demonstrates their understanding.
The National Curriculum in England
The National Curriculum provides pupils with an introduction to the essential knowledge that they need to be educated citizens.
The national curriculum is just one element in the education of every child. There is time and space in the school day and in each week, term and year to range beyond the national curriculum specifications. The national curriculum provides an outline of core knowledge around which teachers can develop exciting and stimulating lessons to promote the development of pupils' knowledge, understanding and skills as part of the wider school curriculum.
