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.
In year three, we have been learning about the Stone Age. Our parents came into school for the afternoon to help us make Stone Age weapons using sticks and stone. We also made tents made from animal hid (it was actually paper and felt cut into the shape of animal hide!)
