Curriculum

What does your child learn at school each day?

Question, Explore, Think! 

Quality First Teaching and Learning: 

We believe that all staff must promote a love for learning and have a clear understanding of how children learn. 

The quality of planning, teaching, learning and assessment will be tailored to suit the needs of all learners.  Our aim is for all children to become independent learners through planning and teaching well-structured lessons, which demonstrate the ability to Explore, Question and Think.  A clear goal is communicated to all children who are then given the opportunity to Explore, using concepts such as story, drama, or technology, Question the learning, to support mastery, and finally Think through and expand concepts to develop greater depth.

Our English Curriculum Overview and Policies

Our English Curriculum is linked directly to other subject areas, to immerse each pupil in their learning. For example in the Autumn Term pupils focus on Historical topics.
At NCJS we use Maths No Problem! This is a scheme of work using Singapore Approaches. The children begin each lesson with an In Focus (this is a problem solving task- to develop reasoning and evaluation). The lesson is then followed by a Let's Learn section. All children have a workbook to record their working out and a Journal to record approaches or Greater Depth work ( known as 'Challenges' by the children and staff).
Focus weeks are 'enrichment sessions' that further develop National Curriculum knowledge and skills.
