Whole School Annual Curriculum Topic Plan 2021 2022

Key Questions

Each year group will be posing a Key Question and, over the course of the term, gathering information and formulating opinions to enable them to answer their question.  We intend to make the learning as realistic and meaningful as possible for the children, making links to the real world and allowing them to explore and find out new things for themselves.  Below are the plans we have made for the term: these will develop and evolve as we explore the children’s interests and experiences.
