How do we teach what we teach? (Implementation)
- English, Mathematics and languages are taught continuously and progressively throughout the year.
- Subjects that have up to 6 units per year – Science, Computing, PE, RE
- Subjects that have 3 units per year – History, Geography, Art, DT, Music
Activities and outcomes from unit plans act as a springboard for more detailed class teacher planning. Teachers access a range of additional resources and schemes to aid the detailed implementation of the unit plans.
In the 2019/20 academic year, in order to ensure all curriculum areas are taught in sufficient depth, we are piloting the reduction of specific English and Maths lessons to 4 per week (which is common in secondary schools) and the increase of curriculum time for other subjects. In essence this will look like one day per week where the wider curriculum is taught in depth (this day also includes a practical problem solving maths activity that may not correspond to the ongoing maths lessons during the week)
