Learning Challenge Curriculum

Key Stage 1 and 2

The classroom curriculum is comprised of two main elements:

The National Curriculum and Religious Education (Come & See).


We plan our curriculum to ensure it has sufficient breadth, balance and relevance for each child where the work is differentiated to each child's own abilities.  We have chosen to use the Learning Challenge Curriculum as our approach, as this approach secures greater learner involvement in their work.  It requires deep thinking and encourages learners to work using a question as the starting point.  In designing the curriculum, teachers and learners use a prime learning challenge as their provocation. Each subsidiary learning challenge is also expressed as a question.  This approach allows for enquiry based learning which promotes curiosity, embeds the application of basic skills across the curriculum, and allows writing to be meaningful and embedded.
