Curriculum

admin

At Pixies Hill, we deliver a broad, balanced curriculum which focuses on learning skills and knowledge. Each year group teaches the National Curriculum (origin 2014) with distinct lessons for Maths and English whilst delivering all other subjects through exciting topic themes using our tailored version of Dimension curriculum (www.dimensionscurriculum.co.uk).

For example, Year 2 cover a topic theme about Pirates. Within this, speed, sound and motion are taught covering science and DT and continents and oceans are taught covering geography.

 

This helps the children to feel that their learning is relevant, linked to multiple curriculum areas and engaging in content. If you would like to know more about the way in which our curriculum has been designed and the practical workings of this then please do not hesitate to get in contact with the relevant class teacher via an appointment at the school office.

We use the Read, Write, Inc phonics scheme across KS1 and in Year 3 for catch up and reinforcement work.
