Planning Cycles

In order to ensure a full and balanced coverage of the National Curriculum foundation subjects we have created three, two year cycles of thematic topics from the International Primary Curriculum. These themes incorporate a range of subjects although usually have one key subject as the driver. They are sometimes supplimented by whole school projects dependent on current affairs, events or the Church Calendar eg The Olympics, Local Studies.

Click on the links below to see the themes in each cycle.

International Primary Curriculum

The new National Curriculum has given schools a much greater flexibility in how we approach planning and teaching & learning across the subjects.

As a school we have always followed a thematic approach but felt we wanted a fresh approach that gave our pupils a wider perspective on the world and greater opportunities for enquiry based learning.

The IPC has been designed to ensure rigorous learning through exciting, active and meaningful themes, whilst allowing pupils to apply their learning in the basic skills. Learning with the IPC takes a global approach; helping children to connect their learning to where they are living now as well as looking from the perspective of other people in other countries. It focuses on collaborative opportunities, developing team working and leadership skills along with independence and perseverance.

The IPC is used by schools in more than 92 countries around the world.
