To meet the requirements of the National Curriculum, all classes in Key Stage 1 and 2 follow topic themes.
The ‘topic-based’ approach to the curriculum which we follow at Bridgtown Primary means that wherever possible, we group our subjects around a broad theme. The topics we choose depend on three factors:
- The content set out in the National Curriculum for each of the subjects
- The interests and needs of the children
- The core values of our school
In following the National Curriculum – it sets out subjects and content which we must teach. Within this, however, there is flexibility so that we can interpret and plan to meet the needs and interests of our children now and for the future. The key aim for all our teaching and learning is to provide opportunities for all pupils to learn, to enjoy and to achieve. We ensure the curriculum is adapted so that it is accessible for all.
How we deliver our curriculum?
The delivery of the curriculum is based on your child’s own class: most subjects and skills are taught by the same class teacher. Many of the topics we’ve planned are shared across ‘partner classes’ in school.
If you would like further details about the curriculum that your child is taught, please do not hesitate to contact your child's class teacher. The newsletter is updated with the topics that are being taught for the upcoming term. Further information for individual subject areas can be found on the subject area pages that are found on the left hand side of this page.
