At Fleet Wood Lane School, we are proud to offer an engaging and empowering curriculum that equips children with the knowledge, skills and confidence to succeed today and into the future. Underpinning our curriculum and embedded in all we teach are 4 main drivers:
1) Take risks- we provide children with a safe environment to be able to confidently challenge themselves in all aspects of their learning both in and out of the classroom.
2) Develop a wider vocabulary-develop articulate learners who use and understand a varied range of vocabulary.
3) Foster a love of reading- helping children to use books to help them learn but also to escape into other worlds.
4) Knowledge and understanding of the wider world -Helping children be compassionate citizens in an ever-changing global community.
We follow the National Curriculum and each year the children are taught 6 exciting topics. Each topic has a key subject area which is taught throughout the school simultaneously. This enables us to build clearly on children’s prior knowledge and reach intended end points. The LORIC characters (Laura Leadership, Ollie Organisation, Raj Resilience, Izzy Initiative and Charlie Communication) are woven throughout the curriculum to develop skills for life. The children are immersed in each topic and experience memorable and stimulating activities. We use knowledge organisers to support the children’s learning and help them to retain the knowledge gained.
