At St Dominic’s we ensure our children follow a broad and balanced curriculum in accordance with the National Curriculum. (Please see the link for the full National Curriculum) www.gov.uk/government/collections/national-curriculum
As we are a small school with mixed year group classes from Years 1-6 we have a 2 year rolling programme of ‘Themes for learning’ which ensures that there is a strong framework through which the connection between subjects are clearly planned.
In autumn, spring and summer each class will follow an overarching ‘Theme for learning’ which will have a focus on History, Geography or Science. This allows our pupils to look at the skills that these subjects require to guarantee a full understanding. In addition to this the other foundation subjects such as D&T, Art and Music will be weaved throughout.
Please see our ‘Themes for Learning Map’ for this academic year 2015-2016.
