Opening the door to life and learning

Our Curriculum

We are very proud of our curriculum at Woodville C.E. Junior school. We deliver exciting lessons that, when appropriate are linked to a half termly project or theme. The long term plan and termly 'Spotlight on the Curriculum' documents show how we use these projects to teach the majority of the National Curriculum subjects.

Long Term Plan 2021-22

SPOTLIGHT ON THE CURRICULUM 2021-22

Curriculum vision

We aim, through our broad and balanced curriculum, to develop a strong sense of purpose in learning and PERSEVERANCE to help them now and in the future. We believe in creating lasting memories for our pupils that allows them to experience the value of JOY, CREATIVITY and individuality. We encourage all pupils to discover their own interests and confidence through asking questions and developing their full potential. We explore our understanding of the world and make sure that everyone sees the links between what we do in school and how it impacts the wider world. Through our RESPECT for each other we enable the children to develop their COURAGE to do what is right.

 

 

Our Curriculum Intent

 

Opening the door to life and learning

 

At Woodville C E Junior School we promote a love of learning with God as our guide, in a place of respect, laughter and friendship, where everyone is valued, inspired and encouraged to reach their individual potential and ‘soar high on wings like eagles’. (Isaiah 40:31)

 

 

 

We immerse children in termly learning projects (TLP), which are designed to broaden their skills, knowledge and understanding, through a range of stimulating, challenging and memorable opportunities, encompassing each child’s individual skills and interests.

 

We believe that all of our children should be entitled to a breadth and balance of experience, knowledge, skills and understanding in all areas of the national curriculum and beyond, which is carefully structured to ensure it:

 

  • provides opportunities for skills to be developed independently, collaboratively and socially
  • fosters perseverance, enthusiasm, independence, curiosity and the sharing of personal experience
  • develops resilience, independence, responsibility and emotional intelligence
  • develops the child’s unique identity in a supportive, personalised environment
  • celebrates and promotes individual talents, interests and achievements
  • promotes understanding of diversity and global awareness
  • enriches each child’s experience at school through visits, visitors and outdoor learning opportunities
  • equips them with life-skills which they can adapt to the world of work, community and global citizenship
  • instils a strong understanding of British values
  • embed Christian values to help make positive contributions to society,
