Breckenbrough School Primary Class is for children aged between nine and eleven years. We provide a nurturing caring, environment for the learning to take place. We deliver the National Curriculum which is differentiated appropriately for each child allowing them to achieve their maximum potential. In the main Primary Classroom we deliver Maths, English, Science, Geography and History and use the Big Cat Collins, reading scheme.
The other curriculum subjects French, DT, Art, ICT, PSHRE, PE are taught by subject specialist teachers in rooms equipped with specific resources for that subject. In order to provide continuity and smooth transition to KS3, these subject teachers and room allocations often remain the same.
Outdoor Education is taught off-site every week. The KS2 Outdoor Education lessons include a block of swimming lessons at a local swimming pool.
At Breckenbrough School, each child is an individual and every child matters. The Curriculum is the means of providing all with opportunities for enjoyment and achievement; economic wellbeing; improving their health; staying safe; helping pupils to make a positive contribution to the school and the community. The Curriculum will strive to ensure that all children enjoy their education and wherever possible it will make learning fun.
Children’s work and achievement within the Curriculum is celebrated, displayed and showcased making a significant impact on the visual appearance of the primary classroom and contributing positively to its ethos of providing an environment where pupils feel valued. The exciting curriculum that we provide will help children to understand who they are and where they live. It will help them to learn about their community, the nation and the world in which they live. It will deepen their cultural awareness and increase their understanding of history, time and place. It will support the development of a respect for and an understanding of the country in which they live, and the range of cultures and beliefs present. They will learn about issues facing the world and the importance of caring for their environment.
