Our Curriculum at Clapgate
We believe that providing our children with a curriculum that is hands on, inspiring and engaging is key. All children should enjoy leaning and be passionate about what they are doing.
At Clapgate we place great value on the wider curriculum and through our way of working ensure that each and every subject is wrapped up in our values and beliefs.
All Foundation subjects at Clapgate are taught in a 2 year rolling cycle ensuring the coverage of all areas. Each half term teachers decide from the long term what their driving subject will be. From this teachers create a learning adventure which allows all subjects within that half term to be covered including writing and maths and reading where possible. It allows children to feel a purpose for what they are doing. It provides them with the opportunity to care, to empathise, to problem solve, to generate enterprise, to be hands on, to be inspired and to be passionate. The adventure allows fluidity between all subjects, it allows cross-curricular links to be made and it allows children to become completely immersed in their learning for the half term.
During each half term every piece of learning the children are involved in links to the next. This means that timetables are left flexible – no subject should be taught at a certain given point in the day. The order of learning completely depends on where the learning adventure takes them next.
At Clapgate we believe that taking children on an adventure through their learning is exciting! So are you ready to go on an adventure with us?
