At Biddick Primary School, we are committed to nurturing: young writers, readers, performers, mathematicians, scientists, geographers, historians, athletes, citizens, linguists, artists, theologists, musicians, designers and computer scientists. We want our children to have NO LIMITS to their ambitions and our curriculum has been carefully crafted to allow our children to achieve their true potential – academically, socially, emotionally and physically.
Our curriculum promotes curiosity and a lifelong love of learning. It equips our children, not only with the skills and knowledge required by the National Curriculum, but also the learning power and life skills they need to prepare them for the responsibilities of later life. We encourage our children to be internationally minded citizens, who learn from other cultures, respect diversity, co-operate with one another and appreciate what they have. We achieve this through our strong SMSC curriculum and our core values, placed at the heart of everything we do.
We are very proud of our curriculum. We have worked really hard to make it fun and exciting, whilst supporting and challenging our children’s learning. We firmly believe that it is not about just what happens in the classroom, it is about enriching our children’s time in school with meaningful and memorable experiences.
We believe that:
- learning around a theme makes sense to children. It helps them make connections, to transfer knowledge and apply it.
- when pupils see how facts and ideas connect with one another within and across subjects, we are constructing meaning for them and allowing them to see the bigger picture.
- children need to be given opportunities to explore, apply their knowledge and develop skills, such as independence and resilience.
- developing projects that engage children’s imaginations and allowing them to research independently has an impact on deeper learning and understanding.
- learning that is experiential is memorable (and usually more fun!)
