Foundation Subjects

This section covers the subjects of History, Geography, Art, DT, Music, PE, Computing and RE. Many of these subjects are covered through our Learning Challenge curriculum. Others such as RE, Computing and PE are covered through a 2 year rolling programme of units. 

We have to use a 2 year rolling programme due to our mixed age classes so that children do not repeat the same units of work. 

Learning Challenge

We are proud of our Learning Challenge curriculum which we believe encourages questioning and a love of learning. We believe that it allows us to encouyrage development of the 7 Cs in our children.

The Learning Challenge curriculum is based around a series of Learning Challenges on which a great deal of learning can be linked to. Examples of these would be:

  • Why did the Titanic sink?
  • Where do the leaves go in winter?
  • Would The Beatles have won X-factor?
  • Why can't a meerkat live in the North Pole?

RE

As a Church Aided school we place high priority on our RE curriculum and are able to devise our own curriculum. The Governors have agreed our RE curriculum which you can see on the 2 year rolling programme above. We teach about three world religions - Christianity, Islam and Judaism and may touch on other religious or non-religious belief systems beliefs such as humanism. 

Our main focus for RE is that is should be activity and epxerience based with opportunities for reflection and discussion built into every lesson. Extended writing does not take place in RE lessons. although RE content may be used in english lessons for this purpose.  

In response to the actions suggested by our most recent SIAMS report we have introduced a 'Places of Worship' visit for Years 4 and 6. During this day (usually in March) Year 4 visit the Princes Road Synagogue in Liverpool whilst Year 6 visit the Al Rahman Mosque, also in Liverpool. In the afternoon both year groups simultaneously visit one of the cathedrals. This is also done on a 2 year basis so that children visit a different cathedral in Year 4 than in year 6. In the academic years 2018-19 and 2019-2020 we will be visiting Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral.
