At Ryhall CE Academy, it is important to us that learning is engaging, as this is when we learn best! With the input of our children, we believe our curriculum to be inspiring and exciting, including educational visits and special visitors to give the children real experiences. Within our classes, we have a thematic approach to learning across the term - this is driven by the declarative knowledge that children will learn in either Geography, History or Science. Each unit begins with a ‘hook’ and will usually end with a celebration of what the children have achieved – the ‘fantastic finish’.
We follow all national curriculum subjects across the school and our planning ensures that children have the opportunity to establish links in their learning both within and across subjects. You can view our overviews for each subject in the documents below.
There is a whole school theme during one week at the end of each long term - this has an RE focus, which is in addition to our one lesson per week in all classes; all staff work together to plan creative events and activities for the children.
In order to see what the children in each year group/class learn in all subjects during each term of the year, please go to the Class Pages under 'PUPIL ZONE' - here, you will find both the Long Term Plan (year overview) and an overview of each topic - these are called 'Theme Plans'.
Our Curriculum Statement outlines in more detail our intent and how as a school we endeavour to meet our aims. This can be viewed below together with the Trust (PDET) Curriculum Statement & Teaching & Learning Statement. A long term plan for each year group can be found in the individual class pages. An overview of key subjects together with their respective subject statements can also be found in the documents below.
