KS1 & 2 Termly Topics

Our Vision:

We aim to inspire our children by providing a curriculum that is creative, that responds and

enables children to lead their own learning; that equips them with the skills required for the 21st

Century, for example, problem solving, higher order thinking skills, team work and co-operation.

At Summer Lane Primary School, our curriculum is balanced and broadly based which

promotes the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of all pupils. It also

prepares them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.

Summer Lane Primary School Curriculum is very successful by employing the following:

  • Topic themed approach ~ that is, as far as possible, strong links are made between the
  • topic and each discrete subject area; therefore making it more meaningful for the children.
  • Trips and Visits ~ each topic is enhanced by a ‘hook’ which could take the form of a visit in order to provide children with first hand experiences, a visitor, or even a theme day within school.
  • Letters and sounds ~ is taught explicitly in EYFS and Key Stage 1 and as needed in Key
  • Stage 2
  • Key drivers ~ Reading, Computing, and pushing the more able are our priorities in relation to learning and teaching for 2014-15.
