"Loved, Inspired, Shining"

Our Curriculum Plans

At St Alphege we follow a bespoke curriculum underpinned by the ABC core skills; Active learning, Basic skills and Creative thinking. The skills are partnered with the Characteristics of effective learning and built on throughout our foundation subjects from Reception up to Year 2. Our whole school approach means that each year group has the same Termly overarching theme in which the progression of skills is at its core.

Terms 1 & 2 have a Geography focus, which will develop skills such as;

  • enquiry
  • making comparisons
  • identification and fieldwork skills
  • showing empathy
  • making observations

Terms 3 & 4 have a history focus, which will develop skills such as;

  • planning and researching
  • analysing and evaluating
  • supporting conclusions
  • seeing things from different perspectives

Terms 5 & 6 will have an art and DT focus, which will develop skills such as;

  • problem solving
  • adapting ideas
  • working towards a goal
  • showing resilience
  • organisation

Below are our Year group Termly overviews for Term 1 & 2: Better together.
