What are we learning about?
This half term our topic is All About Me. We will be learning all about ourselves and our families, starting with where we live and the things around us. As well as this we will learn about Diwali, Christmas and different celebrations.
At St. Clare’s we empower every individual to aim high and reach further. Together we work in partnership with our community to help each person develop the skills needed to face their future and to help them become TERRIFIC citizens whose values are grounded in the Catholic Christian caring ethos we promote. Through effective assessment we can measure the progress of each child on their learning journey.
At St Clare’s Primary School, our curriculum is designed to be creative, inspiring, challenging, and memorable and to provide all children with opportunities to expand their horizons and develop skills that will enable them to be confident, successful learner who will reach their full potential.
Although the Curriculum sets out academic expectations, we want more for our children. In order to enrich their learning and meet the high expectations that we have for them, four main drivers underpin our curriculum ensuring that it is enriched, personalised and aspirational;. These are ‘Honesty, Independence, Growth and Happiness’.
An integral aspect of the curriculum is that children are prepared for the future – during their time in the school, they become fantastic role models and the very best version of themselves. Their individual identity is valued and our children are kind and caring while also aspiring to be the best that they can be in whatever area they choose to pursue. We believe that every child is unique – they all have the potential to achieve; and our broad, varied curriculum allows every child to excel now and in the future based upon their own personal strengths, interests and core values.
From their different starting points, all children will make good progress academically, emotionally, creatively, socially and physically. Knowledge, understanding and skills will be secured and embedded so that children attain highly and are fully prepared for their time outside of the Foundation Stage.
