The staff at Grange Primary School are committed to planning and delivering an exciting, engaging, purposeful curriculum. which meets the needs of individual children and promotes a love of learning, which will endure for life.
The curriculum is designed to support children to make links in their learning; identifying how to process and present scientific evidence through statistics in maths, for example, or using the skills of diary writing learned in English in the morning to record historical facts in the afternoon lesson.
In order to support these links in learning the design of the curriculum is broadly built around topics. Additional work in English, Maths and ICT may also be planned. Topics generally last for half a term. Information about class topics is available from the curriculum information leaflets.
Learning in the classroom is enriched through the careful selection of related educational visits, visitors and special events. This year Years 5 and 4 have swimming lessons on a Tuesday. We greatly appreciate parental support for educational visits, with practical work in the classroom, during library sessions and for reading activities. If you are able to offer some time to the school please see the class teacher or the team in the main office.
We also appreciate parental involvement in homework activities. Parental support to ensure that homework tasks are completed and return to school by the due date is invaluable. If there is a particular reason why your child has been unable to complete their homework, please let the class teacher know through the ‘home school link book’.
