Our curriculum content is drawn from the National Curriculum and is approached through subject specific lessons (mainly English and Maths) or through a number of themes that aim to make children's learning relevant, exciting and real.
Wherever possible we integrate English and Maths skills into our themes so children understand how to apply their learning within a meaningful context.
The themes we use will often have a number of different foci and will lend themselves to the wider subjects in the national curriculum.
These subjects include:
Though not part of the National Curriculum, the following are also taught:
How we teach Maths at Frogwell Primary School
Over the last two years the school has had a focus on improving mathematics outcomes for all children in the school. Our focus has been on developing how we teach maths so that we can ensure that all children have the opportunity to develop mastery in mathematics, along with enabling those children who grasp maths concepts more easily to really challenge their thinking and deepen their learning.
To support this development the school has used the White Rose Maths scheme to support teaching. The school has also been part of a DfE funded research project alongside the Boolean Maths Hub to investigate ways of developing mastery teaching in mathematics. This project initially only involved our Year 1 and Year 5 classes but due to its success we have now adopted the mastery approach throughout the school.
