Through discussions with our children and families we have developed our own unique curriculum. The 'Woodthorpe' Curriculum is a thematic, creative curriculum. This creative approach to curriculum design enables us to take ownership of our curriculum, to shape it and mould it to the needs of our children. Each term our teachers, with the help of the pupils, develop a theme for study - this is based on what the children's interests are and what they 'want' to discover. As well as the national curriculum being covered we also aim to develop core skills that we feel are important for our children in order for them to succeed in modern Britain, things such as teamwork, respect, enthusiasm and self-belief.
As well as this themed approach to learning we also have clear progression systems in place to ensure that children make rapid progress. Each term pupils progress is tracked closely and teachers assess the areas that each individual pupils need to develop the following term.
As well as our 'core' curriculum we also ensure that children experience many wider opportunities. The list attached below gives a flavour of what opportunities children have had over the past academic year.
