BOROUGH GREEN NEW CURRICULUM
As the new national curriculum gives us more flexibility on how we deliver foundation subjects, we have taken this to a new level within Borough Green Primary School. Never before have the staff had their brains buzzing looking at new creative ways to deliver the curriculum. This year, we have completely redesigned our curriculum so our children are taught through a number of experiences over the year; to develop children who have a desire for learning and inquisitive minds to want to know more.
All of the children in the school have been introduced to their first experience with: ‘Who’s coming to tea?’ in KS1; ‘The Really Wild Show’ in Years 3 /4 and ‘The Game of Life’ in Years 5 / 6. Year 1 / 2 have acted out ‘Tiger who came to Tea’; Year 3 /4 have were lucky enough to be in the nature area where they were given the opportunity to hold snakes, spiders and tortoises and Year 5 / 6 became a giant heart to show the movement of blood around the body - and this was just on day one!
Our next experience is a whole school joined learning activity. Staff are furiously planning their lesson content so that the children have a wonderful time when learning; whilst being introduced to new skills and hobbies. Be sure to look around school in the next 3 weeks to see the hints of what this next experience will be about.
