Curriculum

What does your child learn at school each day? Find information about our curriculum subjects here.

During the 2020 school closure, class teachers supplied home learning in line with the Curriculum listed above. We recognise that children have not received the same provision as they would have if they were in school and class teachers have planned to revisit this learning in the next academic year. 

The Key Stage 1 and 2 National Curriculum 2014

 

At Park Walk we have followed the current National Curriculum across the School since September 2014. 
 

  • The 2014 National Curriculum programmes of study are challenging and focused on what the current government sees as essential subject knowledge.
  • For Maths, Science and English, the final programmes of study are both detailed and prescriptive, with lists of objectives for each year and/or stage.
  • However, in other non-core subjects, the programmes of study allow teachers freedom to develop a curriculum for their own school.
     

If you wish to find out more about the subject areas, then please click onto each individual curriculum area or do not hesitate to contact the office and make an appointment to see the Head Teacher, Miss Emily Caldwell.

 

Early Years Foundation Stage: Nursery and Reception

 

The Early Years Foundation Stage framework, followed by the school, promotes teaching and learning that gives children a broad range of knowledge and skills.  It provides the right foundation for good future progress through school and life.

 

Our topic based educational programme is shaped by the seven areas of learning and development.  The three ‘prime’ areas are: communication and language, physical development and personal, social and emotional development.  These are particularly important in igniting children’s curiosity and enthusiasm for learning.  These areas are strengthened and applied in four ‘specific’ areas: literacy, mathematics, understanding the world and expressive arts and design.  Curriculum overviews are available here and detail how these areas are delivered on a half termly basis.

 

The school works to strengthen children’s knowledge and understanding in all of these important areas.  Through observations, their progress is assessed as they work towards seventeen early learning goals.  These cover the knowledge, skills and understanding that children should have at the end of the academic year in which they turn five.

 

At the end of the Early Years Foundation Stage, the EYFS Profile is completed for each child.  As part of this, each child’s level of development against the early learning goals is assessed.  Parents, carers and teachers are then provided with a well-rounded picture of each child’s knowledge, understanding and abilities.

 

Below are three useful documents that contain further information.  Your child's class teacher will be able to provide more information specific to their year group.
