Children at St. Cedd’s learn through a cross curricula approach which gives meaning to their learning. Each half term there is a new theme which is consistent across Key Stage One and Key Stage Two and allows for progression. Each new theme consists of an out-of-school visit or in-school visitor to further enhance the learning experience. Children also consolidate and extend learning at home through completing Extended Challenges which are showcased in school at the end of each half term. English and mathematics are taught with guidance from the National Curriculum. Pie Corbett’s Talk for Writing complements curriculum strategies. Specialists teach Mandarin in KS2 as well as Music. PE is taught in class groups by our Sports Coach. Children have swimming lessons in Year 3 and 4. Religious Education is taught using Understanding Christianity as a resource to support the teaching of Christianity.
Class timetables typically consist of:
Mornings: English, Maths, Phonics/GPS, Reading Comprehension, Quick Recall Maths, Collective Worship.
Afternoons: Reasoning/Problem Solving, Science, Religious Education, History, Geography, Art, Design Technology, Modern Foreign Language, Music, Physical Education.
