What does your child learn at Wooden Hill? The information that you need is provided on these pages.
We teach the curriculum in a variety of ways at Wooden Hill: through whole class teaching, group work and individual work as required. We have a knowledge rich curriculum but are also very aware of the skills that our children need to be taught to become successful and independent learners. We focus very much on the vocabulary and language skills that children require to be successful and plan opportunities for talk across the curriculum.
For the academic year 2018-2019 we are trialling a new thematic curriculum which we feel builds on the interests and needs of our children as well as giving opportunities to explore bigger questions. In order for parents to be fully informed about what their children are learning we send home Knowledge Organisers at the beginning of each half term which detail the curriculum content as well as key vocabulary for the topic. These Knowledge Organisers are available on the class pages.
Below are the curriculum maps for this year. They are a work in progress so may change over time. Also below is a 'Knowledge Progression' which highlights the reasons for decisions made about our curriculum.
For further information about our curriculum please attend parent consultation evenings; curriculum events, which are run throughout the year, or ask your child's class teacher.
