Welcome to our Curriculum Section.
The 2014 National Curriculum is the basis of everything that we teach and has brought a change to the themes we will be teaching at The Dassett CE Primary School. We have adopted the Learning Challenge Curriculum in History, Geography, Science and RE - this uses a text and questions to promote learning.
Teachers map out the curriculum across the entire academic year, developing medium term plans, linking subjects where possible. Detailed short term plans explain how to achieve key objectives in each subject. The curriculum map for each year group will soon be on the respective class page.
Activities are carefully selected according to the age of the children and the needs of individual children. At the Dassett we endeavour to make learning fun with a huge emphasis on active learning, children doing, making and experimenting. We also have 'Theme' days and weeks in order to enhance the curriculum and make learning as motivating, enjoyable and memorable as possible.
