Characteristics of Learning
At the heart of our curriculum are the following eight characteristics of learning. This features in our planning and the way that children talk about their learning.
Our learning takes place through children developing their knowledge, skills and understanding via carefully chosen topics that will capture the children’s interests. These topics have the key drivers of ‘past, present and future’ to help the children gain a sense of what has gone before, what is happening now in the world and how they can be an agent for change in the future. Throughout each year group, six key global themes will also be explored:
- Being Healthy
- Human Rights
- Equality & Diversity
This helps the children gain a clear understanding of the world they live in and how they can make a difference both now and in the future.
