At Steyning C of E Primary School we believe that curiosity and creativity are central to effective learning and endeavour to provide irresistible experiences which inspire and motivate the children and encourage them to engage fully as partners in the learning process.
Whilst Literacy and Numeracy form the gateways to learning in all subjects, we believe that they are brought to life by the other subjects and are therefore interlinked. With this in mind we organise curriculum content around exciting topics which give the children a context for their learning.
With the introduction of the new National Curriculum in 2014-2015, we seized the opportunity to redesign and refresh our topics, ensuring comprehensive coverage of national expectations. The result is a progressive and exciting curriculum providing a wealth of learning challenges throughout the academic year, that require children to solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding effectively.
Each half term or term (dependent on their age) the children begin a new topic. Within this overarching theme, creative links are made to bring all subjects to life. The children are actively involved in steering their own learning journey, as they pursue their interests and questions regarding the topic. To see the overview for each term for each year group please look at the Jigsaws below. Also each term parents are sent the Topic Webs which a clear picture of your child's learning for the term. These can also be found on our website. To find out more about the new National Curriculum please follow this link: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/national-curriculum
