At Sheepy we teach science, history, geography, computing, music, art, design and technology through a cross curricular, topic approach. This makes learning fun, exciting and relevant to the ages of the children. You can find each of our four year rolling programme by clicking on A, B, C or D below. These have been written in line with the 2014 National Curriculum and we have ensured that we cover all objectives.
Within our topics we try and make an ‘entry’ into each one that grasps the children’s attention and makes them want to know more and then we work towards an ‘exit’ point so that they know where their learning is taking them. These are different for each topic and may include a visit or a visitor, some sort of stimuli or whole day activity. As with all learning at Sheepy children have an input into the direction that their learning takes them and we build on things that the children already know.
Being a small school, some of our topics are whole school topics which means the children have opportunities to work with other year groups and siblings and the progression across the school can be clearly seen. Other topics maybe Key Stage based or class based depending on what they are. Most topics last for about three weeks.
Also below, you will find our Windows to the World overviews. We have written these in order to enable our pupils to learn about the world in which they live and to fully understand our diverse national and global community. We have updated these too to include a unit specifically about British Values.
Update September 2018
We have re-written our long term plans for our broader curriculum and these will appear soon on this page. We have moved from a 4 year year plan to a 2 year one and we are very excited about the new content and format!
