National Curriculum & Long Term Plans
What will my child learn in school?
We place a great emphasis on helping the children make links in their learning through a cross-curricular approach to our wider subject teaching. Our curriculum continues this approach as children are taught through themes that have a distinct subject driver and clear curriculum links to other subjects allowing for greater development of skills within a strong and meaningful context for the children.
At Viewley Hill Academy, we want our curriculum to ‘AWAKEN CURIOSITY AND CREATE SUCCESS’ and so themes are planned with interesting and engaging experiences to get the children hooked into their learning. At the end of each theme, we plan for opportunities children to showcase their learning to a real audience. This can be parents, the wider community or other classes in school. Examples include things like a carnival procession, a living museum, a VE party, a stone age market. The children love these experiences!
