What is the approach to our Curriculum at Addison?
- We have been working to develop our curriculum so that it is relevant, exciting and will provide children with meaningful and purposeful learning opportunities.
- We believe in a themed approach to curriculum learning. This means each year group having a clear theme (title) and making connections between subjects
- We make connections between subjects showing the links between core and foundation areas of learning. For example, linking the literacy genre to the afternoon Science: or, linking Numeracy to the DT sessions etc.
- To ensure we plan for, and create, the best possible curriculum for children at Addison Primary School we have included pupils in the planning process.Each half term, during our Parliament Assembly, pupils have the opportunity to share ideas and feelings about aspects of our school.
- We improve the quality of learning by systematically and effectively checking pupils’ understanding in lessons, and making appropriate interventions
- Reading, writing, communication and mathematics are well taught – in core and foundation subjects
- All adults create a positive climate for learning in which pupils are interested and engaged – children are proud of their books and classroom environment
- Marking and constructive feedback from teachers contributes to pupils’ learning – they know how to improve their work
The National Curriculum is the starting point for schools. This means that staff at Addison will continue to devise and structure learning opportunities for pupils that extend beyond the remit of the statutory curriculum.
We will continue to work alongside parents in developing happy, confident and enthusiastic pupils.
We will work to ensure that pupils have the opportunity to practise and grow as skilled and knowledgeable learners – capable of succeeding in any given challenge.
