Northlands Curriculum Overview

 

At Northlands the curriculum forms the basis for our learning and the experiences our children enjoy during their time with us. Our curriculum encompasses creativity, culture and sporting opportunities through a themed approach. We link our learning together through broadening the values and opportunities we provide for our children as they grow and develop into young learners.

 

 

Our curriculum is planned progressively and it promotes an enjoyment of learning and a commitment to learning and achieving. It also works alongside and promotes our school ethos:

One Community - Many Cultures - Achieving Together.  

 

Each Year group will cover three themes over the course of the year. Within each term, the pupils will be taught both the knowledge and skills required to progress through the curriculum areas.

In Early Years we follow the 9 prime areas to support our creative curriculum. Each term a key theme will be used to address the key skills.

 

The thematic overview for each year is shown below. For further information click on the individual subject to discover more.
