Little Hill's Context for Learning
At Little Hill Primary School, we have developed our own bespoke thematic Context for Learning curriculum, following guidance from the primary school National Curriculum. Please follow the link to read the 2014 National Curriculum in full.
Our thematic curriculum ensures that all learning is aspirational and subjects are interwoven through a range of linked projects. We build pupils’ expertise across all subjects, enhanced by the involvement of practising experts in their fields, such as, scientists, authors, artists and athletes. Learning at Little Hill is always meaningful, engaging practical and fun!
We deliver a broad and balanced curriculum through our Context for Learning themes, in a welcoming, stimulating and secure environment. A variety of teaching and learning styles and strategies are used to provide opportunities for all children to learn and achieve, and to promote their spiritual, moral, social and cultural development preparing them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life.
Importance is placed on both academic and social skills to encourage children to become active learners and responsible members of the community. Children will have opportunities to participate in individual, group and whole class activities with an emphasis on the learning being interesting, meaningful and relevant to them. This is enhanced through both practical experiences and educational visits.
The curriculum is well resourced and supported by visitors and parents.
