Curriculum GuideAndrew Thomas
The Mastery-learning model forms the basis of our approach to teaching and learning. This means that we spend greater time going into depth about a subject as opposed to racing through the things that all children should know, ensuring no child is left behind. At Bearwood Primary and Nursery school we are dedicated to teaching concepts, so the children understand forwards, backwards and inside out, in order to allow all pupils to deepen their understanding. All pupils will spend time becoming true masters of content of their year group curriculum, applying and being creative with new knowledge and skills in multiple ways.
This booklet has been produced as a guide for parents to aid in the understanding of your child’s education. This booklet aims to give parents an overview of the key learning in each year group so that all stakeholders are aware of what pupils need to be in line with national expectations for their year group. It is important to note that this is a summary of the most important parts of the curriculum at Bearwood Primary and Nursery School.
This booklet is a summary of expectations from Nursery through to Year 6. Please note that the key learning in Nursery and Reception is not part of the National Curriculum.
