In Curie Class we follow the National Curriculum for Numeracy and Literacy. Our creative curriculum is based on projects; we link the projects to all areas of the National Curriculum. These areas are: Science, Geography, History, Design and Technology, Art, Music, Cooking and Nutrition and Computing.
During our project, we aim to have opportunities for children to enhance their Literacy skills; writing at length as well as focusing specifically on grammar, punctuation and spelling objectives.
Mathematics is also included, where possible, in our project and covers the objectives in the Year 4 curriculum. We teach Maths in practical and exciting ways, ensuring we deepen the understanding that children have of the three key areas; Problem solving, Reasoning, and Fluency.
Our projects run for a term and they involve exciting days for the children including trips, visitors, child led ‘Google’ days and WOW days.
The Autumn project in Curie Class is “Terrific Transport”.
During this project we will investigate transport through the ages, the development of eco-friendly transport and how
In our Science lessons we will look at electricity, electric circuits, magnetism, magnetic poles, forces, gravity, resistance and sound. This will include Science experiments and investigations using ICT.
We will investigate how vehicles, boats and planes use technology and science.
During our historical studies we will study World War II and transport, changes in transport, the development and availability of transport after world war II, including military transport.
In our geography lessons we will undertake fieldwork in the local area, including village walks and traffic surveys.
We will create wonderful pieces during our Art and Design Technology lessons, including designing a logo for a travel company, designing our own eco vehicle and studying these artists linked to transport - Joseph Turner (boats and trains) Van Gogh (trains, carriages) Canaletto (boats).
