How We Deliver Our Curriculum
Many of the topics planned at The Mayflower Primary School are shared across two ‘partner classes’ in school e.g. Years 1 and 2, Years 3 and 4 and Years 5 and 6. This means that teachers can share ideas and skills when planning and delivering the curriculum. To share topics and avoid repetition, we operate a two-year rolling programme, with some topics in ‘Year A’ and some in ‘Year B’.
In the core areas of reading, writing, mathematics and science, we make regular assessments of children's progress and their level/stage of learning. We search for gaps in the children’s learning, and prioritise what needs to be taught. In this way we help all children to promptly take the next steps forward with their learning.
The curriculum will continually change and adapt to meet the needs of the children. Children are all unique with their specific learning requirements. Therefore, we do not simply deliver the National Curriculum to all children in the same way. We alter planning day by day, week, by week and term by term to ensure that the best curriculum is provided for every child.
