Curriculum Overview

At Churchside we believe that teaching has to inspire children to have enquiring minds and give them a lifelong love of learning. We follow a creative approach to our curriculum, where possible subjects are intertwined to give rich and purposeful learning experiences. The whole Federation follows the same umbrella theme each half term but the learning from class to class looks very different.  The children are fundamental in planning which route their learning takes. Through their ideas, comments and questions teachers plan their lessons. All the objectives children follow are taken from the National Curriculum to ensure that they are being given a broad and balanced education.

Our themes this year are:

Autumn One


Autumn Two

Musical Minds

Spring One

How to train a dragon

Spring Two

I can change the world

Summer One

Into the Woods
