Relationships * Determination * Sparkle

Our curriculum at Anderton Park

What we are learning and why           

 

Our well-designed, well-thought through curriculum is like an intricate web of jaw-dropping connections that deliberately stress concepts because they are very transferable. We value these things the most; they are what make us the people we are today and will be tomorrow. Throughout the school, you will see and feel many of these important concepts, for example:

 

Relationships

 

Determination & perseverance

 

Sparkle – being inquisitive, plenty of oxytocin

 

Being healthy – mind and body

 

Equality

 

Treasuring our Nation

 

Empathy

 

Survival & our future

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Taking responsibility

 

Our impact on the environment

 

Law and rights

 

Achievements & passions

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Care and respect

 

Love of language & the arts

 

Time and timelines

 

Beliefs

Thirst for knowledge and enquiry

 

Reading for knowledge

Reading, memorable knowledge & new words

We want children to know new knowledge and words. We know that ‘learning more words makes you smarter’ and we read different texts in every lesson, fiction and non-fiction. 90% of new knowledge comes from reading; we therefore have a passion for reading, in particular how we infer meaning from what we read and see.

 

Experiences, songs, females, Shakespeare and National Treasures

Visiting places that will enhance our knowledge and help us make new connections in our learning are very important. We also invite visitors into school to talk to us and involve us in a new experience. Songs are a mnemonic that help us make knowledge permanent. We learn from many human beings but are particularly interested in women’s voices as they are so often overlooked.

  We try to redress imbalances in society by equipping ourselves with knowledge. And, in Britain, we have many National Treasures, Sir David Attenborough, Mary Anning , the Queen  for example, from whom we can learn many things. We are building our knowledge of them and their wisdom.

 

Shakespeare’s words too feature in all year groups throughout the year.
