BOROUGH GREEN NEW CURRICULUM
At Borough Green Primary we deliver the curriculum in a way that ensures the maximum impact on our children. Our lessons evoke emotions and strive to totally immerse the children in an experience that is memorable and enjoyable. This re-designed curriculum teaches the children through a number of experiences over the year which develop the children’s natural inquisitiveness. We aim to involve the local community in as many experiences as possible with parents/grandparents etc. involved in tea parties, art exhibitions and documentary presentations.
Experiences include catchy titles that provide an ideal ‘hook’. Some examples are: ‘Who’s coming to tea?’ in KS1; ‘The Really Wild Show’ in Years 3 /4 and ‘The Game of Life’ in Years 5 / 6. Classrooms are turned into habitats, tea rooms, places of mystery and children become detectives, explorers and production teams to name but a few.
There are also occasions throughout the year when the whole school undertake a joint experience. An example of this is the Art Experience where many beautiful pieces of art were created collaboratively across the year groups. In 2017 – 2018 the whole school experiences will be science, R.E. and P.E.
