Staff plan and organise the learning for each year group to ensure that there is continuity and progression. Our curriculum planning framework aims to provide a broad, balanced and exciting education set within the context of the National Curriculum. At Eliot Bank, as we develop the curriculum, we make meaningful links between the different subjects. Although English and Maths are taught discretely at certain times of the day, they are also taught within a cross-curricular context.
Visits and visitors are seen as a vital stimulation for children’s interest and are closely linked with the contexts for learning. Each year group goes on one local trip every term and one that is further afield – into central London or out into the countryside. We also have termly visits from theatre companies, every year group works with the Dulwich Picture Gallery and we celebrate events such as World Book Day and National Science week by bringing in authors and experts to enhance our learning.
Contexts for Learning
The ‘Contexts for Learning’ are drawn from the current plans and schemes of work. They have been adapted to reflect the areas of the new curriculum which integrates personal skills.
