The George Street Curriculum themes
Our curriculum is carefully planned in order to ensure coverage of the National Curriculum, whilst also adapting to suit the interests of our pupils, e.g. to use the locality wherever possible to enable Learning to Come Alive.
Longitudinal learning allows for revisiting, e.g. in history in KS2 pre-history is studied in Y3 by looking at buildings, whilst in Y5 the theme is beliefs.
Skills are developed as pupils become older, in line with National Curriculum expectations.
Our class pages give greater detail of the themes across KS1 and 2.
Maths Learning at George Street
We use the Maths Essentials resources produced by Herts for Learning. This is an easy to pick up and use set of sequences with step by step guidance covering the entire mathematics curriculum from Year 1 to Year 6. Designed to support teachers, the planning includes examples of how concrete and pictorial representations can benefit pupils’ learning as well as other mastery techniques. The new ESSENTIALmaths planning tool has a wealth of ideas to deepen and extend mathematical thinking for all learners.
