St Teresa’s Curriculum
At St.Teresa’s our children follow a broad and balanced curriculum in accordance with the National Curriculum. We use a framework in collaboration with other local schools, which includes discrete teaching of Learning Skills and Connected Curriculum Units.
The Connected Curriculum is a strong framework through which the connections between subjects are clearly planned for. Each half term themed Learning Units, for each year group, will cover all foundation subjects: History, Geography, D&T, Art, Music and the Core Subject Science with one or two of these subjects being a ‘focus subject’. The ‘focus subject’ of a Learning Unit provides opportunities for our children to ‘get under the skin’ of the skills and deepen their understanding of that subject area. For example, with history as a focus subject it gives our children the opportunity to know and understand what it is to be a historian.
Please see our Curriculum Map for the Connected Curriculum Learning Units for each year group.
At St.Teresa’s we are very committed to developing all our children to becoming successful learners. Please go to ‘Successful Learners’ to find out how we support our children in their learning skills.
