Curriculum outline

Across school we work in phases and create a Mid Term Plan for each Key Stage. Mid Term Plans are for class teachers. They link specifically to the National Curriculum objectives to ensure full coverage.

The following topic web is then created to send home. This contains key vocabulary, the main class texts, hooks and the roles children will take on in each subject area.

Before each topic begins, staff complete a pre-assessment to see what the children already know. These can be completed in different formats at the teacher’s discretion.  

These mats are developed and personalised by Birchfield Primary School from ‘Focus Education Sticky Knowledge Mats’. Knowledge mats outline key facts children need to remember.

At the end of each topic, children will complete the pre-assessment task again. This will show the progress children have made.
