Curriculum

Our School Curriculum Vision

Our curriculum is designed around two very simple concepts

  • We ensure our children learn and embed the key skills necessary in every subject area to enable them to move onto their next stage of learning confidently
  • We ensure our curriculum is full of rich activities and inspirational moments to broaden our children’s horizons, to provide them with opportunities to develop passion for areas of learning and to introduce them to potential aspirations they had never dreamed of before

                                

 

At  the  Bordon Infant School  we  aim  to  enhance  the  curriculum  through  rich  and varied  learning  opportunities.    We  believe  that  first  hand  experience  is  an  important aspect  of  learning.    Many  experiences  can  be  catered  for  in  school.    However,  we recognise  that  some  learning  experiences  are  accessed  more  effectively  off  site.    As with  all  learning  activities,  the  health  and  safety  of  pupils,  staff  and  helpers  is paramount  at  all  times.

Every class will undertake at least one school trip every academic year. These will be linked to the curriculum to ensure that they have significant educational value and there will be follow-up activities.

We want to inspire children with their learning and to put things into context for them.

Our curriculum is based on themes that we believe will capture the children’s imagination and reflect their lives and interests. The children will explore the local area whilst learning about World War 1, or learn how to write a story using Julia Donaldson’s storybooks The Gruffalo. Each half term we send home information about what the children will be learning and what the context for that learning is. We hope that this will allow parents to really get involved with their child’s time in school.

Parents can help support their child by reading regularly with them, encouraging them to learn their spellings and helping them to do their best with their topic homework once a half term.

Below, in each of the year groups you will find the current topic leaflet which will give you some ideas of activities you can do with your child related to their learning in school.
