Curriculum

Curriculum at Frettenham

At Frettenham we have mixed-aged and Key Stage classes. We embrace and celebrate the opportunities that this structure provides. We have a created a rich, varied and challenging school curriculum to meet our learners’ needs. It reflects where the children come from culturally and prepares them wholly for their future schooling and adult life.

The curriculum at Frettenham uses and builds upon the National Curriculum ensuring that children study areas in-depth, in order to secure children’s knowledge and understanding, while providing plenty of opportunity for children to apply what they have learnt.

At Frettenham, we don’t believe that knowledge should be taught in isolated chunks or facts. We have therefore created a set of carefully planned rolling overviews in order that children can apply their knowledge and skills across different subjects and in different contexts. Each subject is planned discretely ensuring subject specific knowledge and skills are carefully considered from the starting point.

 In-order for children to have a voice, KWL grids are used at the beginning of each unit. Children are able to share prior knowledge, ask questions and include possible areas of additional learning, helping to provide a degree of ownership and therefore additional motivation. These are revisited throughout the study to enable the children to draw key aspects of their learning together.

 These studies could if appropriate be part of their Inquiry topic. Pupils become experts by negotiating an imagined context. They can immerse themselves in a time in history, a geographical location or a story narrative through role-playing, questioning, directing and imagining. 

Science, Geography, Art, D&T and History are all taught in units, which are taken directly from the National Curriculum. Each unit is planned in-depth to ensure subject-specific knowledge and skills are learnt in national curriculum stipulated contexts. Trips and visitors are used within each class to enrich the curriculum and enable the children to further develop the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding. In addition to trips which enhance the curriculum we have planned projects which the children all experience at certain points of their schooling. These include Charlie-Charlie One, Shakespeare in Schools and Goblin Racer.

In order to assess the depth of understanding the children have developed through their unit and building on previous learning, POP tasks (Proof of progress), open ended activities and Big Questions are used through the unit to gain additional evidence of their understanding.

Parents who do not want their child to take part in Religious Education lessons or in collective acts of worship should express their wishes in writing to the Headteacher.
