Warren Curriculum from Year 1-6
Warren’s curriculum is designed and regularly updated by our staff to make sure that the children are engaged and inspired in every lesson. From Year One to Year Six, our broad, balanced curriculum covers the following subjects:
· English (speaking and listening, reading, writing and grammar, including Phonics)
· Religious Education
· Physical Education
· Art & Design
· Design Technology
Wherever possible, we make links between the subjects so that the skills from one can be practised and applied in another, for instance, writing instructions in Science or plotting graphs in History. Our children have chance to study subjects in practical ways and enjoy a variety of enrichment activities, including subject-related trips, inspiring visitors into school, PE tournaments, music tuition and residential visits throughout the year.
Through Warren’s stimulating curriculum, we aim to build children’s independence and resilience through giving them opportunities to research, work with partners and present their work in a variety of ways without relying on the adults. We use Phonics Bug and Bug Club to support the teaching of our phonics and reading.
Each subject covers different skills and knowledge in each year group. Please look below for the curriculum overview for each year group.
Our curriculum is underpinned by the National Curriculum (2014), we enhance this with planned opportunities that make up the wider school curriculum. Learning is always exciting and in a meaningful context for children. Where commonality exists between subjects and aspects, learning is linked and lessons taught using a cross-curricular approach. Where this is not achievable, subjects are taught discretely. The rehearsal and application of basic skills learned in the core curriculum is a driver for the entire curriculum.
We place a strong emphasis on the development of the basic skills necessary to be confident independent learners and successful adults. All children engage in a daily English skills session where they develop their reading and comprehension skills in addition to developing a command of all aspects of the English language. In addition, all children take part in a daily English and Mathematics lesson.
At Warren Primary Academy, children develop a strong sense of moral purpose in addition to a respect and understanding of people who have different characteristics to themselves, whether that be age, disability, gender, race or sexuality. A rigorous, well planned curriculum, delivered by excellent staff in an ethos of care, love and support enables our pupils to be well rounded, empathetic young people who have a thirst for learning and respect for all around them.
Religious Education is delivered through the Nottinghamshire Agreed Syllabus.
