EYFS/Key Stage 1 Curriculum

At John Clare Primary we are proud of all of the achievements our children make.  We aim to inspire them to want continue to learn and achieve throughout their lives.  We run a two year curriculum that is based around the guidance from the National Curriculum and the interests of our children.  As a school we feel that it is important that children have the opportunity to undertake open ended activities that enables them to learn through the  practical application of their learning.

We have incorporated the ‘Building Learning Power’ approach into our planning and curriculum.  The children learn about ‘Resourcefulness’, ‘Reciprocity’, ‘Resilience’, ‘Reflectiveness’ and ‘Responsibility’: these 5 ‘Rs’ help the children to develop not only their understanding but how they work together and apply their knowledge.

Due to our mixed-aged classes, we follow a 2 year curriculum cycle for EYFS/KS1 and our ‘topics’ are based around our Power of Reading Book cycle.

For more information about what your child will be learning, please contact your child’s class teacher and look out for updates on Google Classroom.
