Curriculum

Information for parents:

Parents or other members of the public can find out more about the curriculum we are following, on this page. Full details of each year group’s half-termly curriculum maps are found below.

A new National Curriculum for Primary Schools came into law from September 2014. You can find the full document at: https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/national-curriculum

Children in the Early Years (Reception) follow the requirements of ‘Early Years Foundation Stage Framework’. You can find the full document at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/early-years-foundation-stage-framework–2

At Little Melton Primary school we follow the requirements of both of the above. Our planning uses cross curricular topics (eg a topic such as ‘Stone Age, Bone Age’ includes content drawn from History, Geography, Art and Music) alongside discrete subject teaching. Wherever possible we also seek to make meaningful links for the children between subjects and also to reinforce key literacy and maths skills across the curriculum. This includes extended writing opportunities planned in across the curriculum, and also planned opportunities for real-life Maths experiences, to supplement the daily discrete Maths lessons.  We seek also to actively promote British Values of tolerance, understanding of different faiths, democracy and the rule of law through our taught curriculum and school ethos (see Assembly Themes, Children’s Code and Curriculum Maps).

Our planning is broken down into half-term blocks, and can be accessed below.  The ‘Whole school overview’ details the full range of content which is covered across the whole of each child’s time in each year group. As we have mixed-age classes, there is a 2 year cycle of planning for each class.

‘Keeping Safe and Healthy’ is a special topic area taught here, which aims to draw together a range of content connected by the theme of being safe. Examples include, e-safety, road safety, drugs and medicines education and SRE. This is further reinforced by our programme of Assembly themes and our Behaviour Policy.

Little Melton Primary school follows the Norfolk Agreed Syllabus for RE.  RE is block planned, with Music, to provide more in depth coverage on alternate half-terms.  (See link below for our 2-year plan- which feeds into the full curriculum overviews. This 2-year plan was developed through recent direct working with the Norfolk Schools RE advisor.)
