Woolton Hill Junior School's Curriculum
At Woolton Hill Junior School we deliver a thematic curriculum underpinned by a rigorous approach to the teaching and learning of the core skills of reading, writing and mathematics. Priority is placed on ensuring that these skills are taught progressively throughout the school with clear, whole school expectations and approaches. Reading, writing and mathematics are taught on a daily basis to every child at Woolton Hill Junior School. Alongside daily English and Maths lessons and weekly Science sessions, we deliver non-core subjects through carefully chosen themes that help the children to develop a life-long love of learning.
Alongside the main topic areas that are delivered in school we also deliver some subject specific topics that exist outside the main topic area being studied. This allows us to ensure continuity and progression in specific subject areas and that children access a broad and balanced curriculum
The subject content of our curriculum’s fulfils the requirements of the National Curriculum issued in September 2014. However we have worked hard a as staff to ensure that the content is best matched to the needs of our children.
What is a thematic curriculum?
This is a way of teaching and learning whereby many areas of the curriculum are connected together and integrated within a theme. It allows learning to be more natural and less fragmented and motivates the children through inspiring content and exciting activities. Please visit a class page (in the Children tab) to see that Topic Web for the particular term.
Please contact the school to speak with your child's class teacher or a member of the Senior Leadership Team.
