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 “Tales from around the World”.
During this project we will read and study many stories from around the World. Our learning journey will start in Africa and move to Oceania, Asia and the Americas. The stories all contain animals, fantastic characters and morals. We will look at how these stories are linked and why traditional tales often have a moral.
During our geographical studies, we will look at different countries and compare both human and physical elements, including the traditions and culture of the country. We will use maps and atlases to help inform our studies, also creating our own maps and charts.
We will create wonderful pieces during our Art lessons, including African patterns using sewing techniques, natural material printing and Aboriginal animal art using clay. We will also study the work of different artists and art genres from around the World.
