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.
Autumn learning 2020…
In Y6 we have already explored portrait work in Art, delved into the mind of Darwin in Science (discovering how evolution and inheritance works) and studied the impact of WW2 on children. In Literacy, we have used COVID to inspire diary entries and poetry, and have recapped number, place value and the four operations in Maths. With a broad and engaging curriculum still ahead of us, we are looking forward to exploring pastry in D.T, Hinduism in R.E and Settlements in Geography. Our home learning activities link to all of these: the Y6 adults are looking forward to seeing the creations and learning taking place from home!
