Key Stage 2 Curriculum Plan

|

We have a 4-year topic plan for the junior children: subjects are taught through the topics wherever appropriate to engage and excite the children and help them develop links in their learning. The topics are enriched with visits and/or visitors in school to give the children first hand experiences and provide stimulus for their work in school.
