At Tees Valley Education, we view our broad and balanced curriculum as the totality of every planned experience and interaction that our children will encounter. It saturates and informs every aspect of our practice and our culture: from academic content, to safeguarding, to poverty proofing, to the planned roles and recruitment of adults working in our academies.
We build the supporting frameworks around the children, which we hope will allow them to develop the characteristics that ensure they are ready to learn, allowing them to become independent, confident and successful learners, preparing them well for future life and to feed the demands of an increasingly complex workplace and society.
This term, we have been learning about new life and looking at the life cycles of the butterfly, the hen and the frog. We are very excited at the moment to have 10 chicks in our classroom, which hatched this week. We are also learning about life on the farm, farm animals and their babies and we will be visiting Tweddle Farm later this term.
We have 10 chicks, five boys and five girls!
