Our Non-Core Curriculum

Our wide and varied thematic curriculum for the 21st century and beyond...

Detailed information for parents is available in the class curriculum pages at the bottom of this page. You can find out what children will be learning in each subject,  


All of the work we are going to do has been specially written to help your child reach the learning goals. Children will be reading, researching, writing, illustrating, working on their own and working in groups. We will be checking to see how well your child has learned through particular activities and asking children to explain their work, perhaps to you.


We already know the interest you take in your child’s work. If you can, please discuss with your child the work they have done as the term progresses and let them teach you.


If your child has some work to research, please help them, but without actually doing the work. If you have the chance to further their interest in the ideas of this theme please take it, but your enthusiasm and interest is most important.


By the end of each of the units, we hope that your child will have achieved all of the learning targets. We also hope they have had an enjoyable time in the classroom and that you will have enjoyed seeing your child work with enthusiasm. If you have any comments or questions about your child’s learning, please speak to your child’s class teacher in the first instance or alternatively email our Deputy Headteacher, Mr Penn at
