At Homefield we have adopted The Learning Challenge Curriculum. This is an enquiry based curriculum, meaning that children will be encouraged to develop key skills in order to further their own learning and understanding. Your child will look at a number of big questions through the year and, together with the class, design a learning journey that will lead them to the answers.
We do recognise that not all subjects can be taught in this way and regularly teach discreet lessons for a number of subjects. English and Maths are taught separately to ensure that there is sufficient focus in all year groups. Science will be taught separately unless there is a clear topic link.
Each class teacher delivers English and Maths in daily, whole class sessions. These sessions cater for the variety of needs within the class. All classes have access to a teaching assistant during these sessions, who can be used to support lower ability children and push the higher achievers. Every class in the school delivers their English and Maths at the same time in the day, including sessions for guided reading.
During this academic year we have been working hard on the curriculum that we offer. As a result we have been awarded the School Sports Silver Award and the Religious Education Silver Quality Mark. We are thrilled that our exciting curriculum has been recognised by these organisations and we are now pushing for gold in both!
Using the links below you can see the key objectives that your child will be covering in each subject area. Further information can be requested from your child's class teacher.
