Here at Abacus Primary School, we are very proud of our curriculum.
We plan for a creative curriculum, which means that we weave the requirements of the National Curriculum into exciting, current and relevant topics, such as Marvellous Me (EYFS), Super Heroes (Y1), A Question of Sport (Y2), Stone Age to Iron Age (Y3), Rainforests (Y4), and Innovative Inventions (Y5/6). We try to include exciting theme days to enthuse our children about their learning, and our school trips aim to build on what we have been learning in class. As well as being a creative curriculum, we really believe that teaching our children skills is the key to being successful beyond Primary School, so the teaching of the skills is just as exciting to us as the content.
Please take a look at our topic plans to see the kinds of things that we are learning about this term and beyond!
Long Term Plan
We have spent a lot of time on our curriculum over the last year. We have dedicated members of our team who are responsible for individual subject areas, and their biggest job this year has been taking ownership of their subject in the whole school curriculum.
Each subject leader has studied the progression for their subject (from Year 1 to Year 6) and organised the structure for the whole school year, taking into account the interests of the children in our school and the current events that they may be interested in (for example, in the Summer Term, Y2's topic is 'A Question of Sport' which links to the Olympics and Euro 2020 in the summer).
Check back soon for some pupil feedback about our learning opportunities in the Autumn Term.
