Our New Topics
We use Cornerstones curriculum materials as the basis of our topic work. Classes pair up and cover a two year rolling syllabus of topics so that they never repeat work. Within this the work of older and more able pupils is more challenging to ensure that they reach and exceed national expectations. Topics have a particular subject emphasis e.g. history, science, geography, art, p.e., computing and design technology, and we ensure that there is a balance across the year so that topics are given a similar weighting in terms of teaching time.
Basic skills are taught as part of a topic where appropriate but will also be taught discretely to ensure there is appropriate coverage.
