Our School Year


The Government introduced a new curriculum in 2014 which meant we had an exciting change in the areas and topics we have to teach.

We try to link learning across the school as much as possible, to enable children in different year groups to share ideas and discussions as they learn.

Below you will find an overview of the topics that each year group focuses on for each half term.

For detailed information on these topics, please visit the individual class pages.

Below is a list of subjects we will be
covering in school this year
