The national curriculum (2014) is taught at Coleham Primary School. Our teachers work hard to ensure the curriculum is as stimulating and exciting as possible, so that the children enjoy learning and are inspired to become lifelong learners. We have built in many links with the local area as we are lucky enough to have a wealth of resources right on our doorstep and we therefore plan to continue taking the children on as many trips out of school as possible, to excite and interest them in their learning and to create a real life context to learning.
Our aim is to deliver our whole school creative curriculum in a cross curricular way. Within each theme of work maximum opportunity will be taken to integrate cross curricular links, with literacy and numeracy at the core.
Our creative curriculum has 4 'drivers', which are constantly considered when deciding how and what we teach.
1: Lifelong learning and skills (maths, literacy, debating, computing)
2: Community and environment (science, forest schools, geography/history)
3: Healthy lifestyles (PE, PSHE, SRE and RE)
4: Creativity (music, drama, DT and art)
