Learning

 

At Wouldham All Saints Church of England Primary we believe all children need a broad and balanced learning experience that helps prepare them for life in modern Britain. To do this the school is organised into different classes by age. All children work on the National Curriculum which was introduced in September 2014. Each year group has specific objectives for English and Mathematics and will then cover part of all other areas of the curriculum.

Rather than teaching distinctive weekly lessons of things like geography and art we organise a 'theme' for the term which will enable the children to learn subjects in context and to make links between all areas of learning. Children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 will share the same theme and this is also the case for the Juniors (Years 3, 4, 5 & 6).

Children's performance is assessed throughout all learning and we currently use an electronic profile to record achievements made each week. This tracks each individual and will build up a picture of whether a child is performing at the age expected level, working towards the expected level or exceeding it. Our expectation is for pupils to make strong progress in all areas and children are also challenged to apply and use their learning in a range of circumstances to demonstrate security of understanding.

A copy of the present National Curriculum with details of expectations for each age group can be found here. A guide to how the curriculum will be taught throughout the current academic year for each year group can be found here.
