Our vision statement says 'Learning is a way of life.' We therefore place great emphasis on children developing the skills and qualities of independent learners, such as enquiring minds, creativity, analytical skills, perseverance, teamwork, resourcefulness and commitment. Whilst a great deal of work goes into providing a safe and stimulating environment for children to learn in, we also strive hard to provide the right blend of support and challenge appropriate to the needs of each child. Our children do not learn in isolation, but together, in partnership both with their peers and with children of different ages. We place a high priority on giving children a firm grounding in the basics, but our curriculum extends well beyond the 'traditional' subjects. We have an extensive enrichment programme, which adds to children's enjoyment of learning.
The Midsomer Norton Curriculum for Years 1 to 6 is based on the new National Curriculum 2014, and uses the Chris Quigley planning scheme to ensure that the curriculum meets the needs of our children.
We have an overview of topics for the year divided into Year A and Year B. 2017-18 is a Year B, so that is where you will find the topics for this year.
The objectives for each year are all available by clicking the following links.
|Early Years Year A&B|
|Key Stage 1 (Y1/2) Year A||Key Stage 1 (Y1/2) Year B|
|Lower Key Stage 2 (Y3/4) Year A||Lower Key Stage 2 (Y3/4) Year B|
|Upper Key Stage 2 (Y5/6) Year A||Upper Key Stage 2 (Y5/6) Year B|
Each phase posts an update each week (see link above) to keep parents and carers informed of what their child is learning in school.
