Welcome to Westglade's Creative Curriculum.
The majority of our teaching in History, Geography, Science, Music, Art, D&T and other subjects areas is covered through our 'Learning Challenges'. A yearly overview for each year group is included below. We like to make learning relevant to engage the children we teach. The way we have chosen to do this is through child initiated questioning. We talk with our class about what it is they are interested in and we structure an overarching Learning Challenge question, and a series of smaller questions within the theme, through discussions with them. We then make sure we have coverage of the curriculum in the ways in which we answer the children's questions. The majority of the time English and Maths is also tied in to these central questions.
If you would like to find out more information about our curriculum or what your particular class is learning, please speak to your class teacher at the end of the day. We are always happy to help!
