Gunter Primary School’s Creative Curriculum has been carefully designed to ensure that it meets the needs of the children in our school as well as the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum. We have used the National curriculum as an outline of core knowledge around which we have developed exciting and interesting themes which aims to motivate, inspire and empower children to embrace learning and achieve their personal best.
The curriculum has been arranged into three main themes for each year band with one theme being taught each term. Each theme is planned to last for approximately 10 weeks to ensure that there is room for flexibility to allow children to direct their own learning and to explore opportunities that arise as a result of their study. Two of themes in each year band have been mapped around the programmes of study for Science with the remaining theme being based upon the Humanities (history and geography). This has been carefully planned to ensure coverage across the Key Stages and that there is enough scope for the depth of knowledge to be developed. In Art we have developed a bespoke curriculum that links to the theme but also discretely teaches the skills and knowledge laid out in the National Curriculum. Wherever possible, meaningful cross curriculum links have been made with English and Mathematics. Foreign language, PE, History, DT and computing have their own independent schemes of work. PSHE is taught using the SCARF programme of study and Religious Education follows the Birmingham LA ‘Agreed Syllabus’.
Any Programmes of Study that have not been linked to the themes will be taught as discrete units either at the beginning or end of the main theme. If required the themes may be completed at different times to those stated - occasionally themes may change when there is advantage to do so, (e.g. when the Olympic Games occur, Christmas, National and local events).
