Our curriculum content is drawn from the National Curriculum and we aim to make children's learning as relevant, exciting and real as we can. Wherever possible we integrate English and Maths skills into our topic themes so children understand how to apply their learning within a meaningful context. Each term, the learning is driven by an enquiry question that we use as the basis for the children's learning in different subject areas. Examples of enquiries are How tall will my sunflower grow? (early years), Where does our food come from? (key stage 1) and What makes your body so amazing? (key stage 2).
The National Curriculum 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.
