Curriculum

Curriculum Statement

Constantine Primary is committed to meeting the requirements of the primary National Curriculum, through a cross curricular, inspiring, engaging and high-level enquiry based approach and is taught with the consideration of the needs of all learners.

The curriculum has two elements; to provide opportunities for all children to feel a sense of belonging, believing, aspiring and achieving and to inspire a passion for learning, in readiness for the next stage of education.

At Constantine, we use a blocked enquiry based approach to the teaching of topics specifically designed for individual classes in the Autumn and Spring Terms, with a Summer Term Whole school topic each year. This means that children will be taught each subject in a block rather than 1 lesson a week. The rationale for this is that the children can be fully immersed in a particular subject; developing a love of learning. There is an emphasis on first hand experiences as motivators for the topics, this includes class visits, visitors into school and planned events.  Each topic starts with allowing the children to ‘open their minds’ and take ownership of their learning. The activities develop the skills of the child and we are proud that our curriculum develops a clear progression of skills throughout their time at Constantine.

Parents and carers can find out more details about the topics from our Curricular Newsletters handed out at the start of each topic and they can also be found on the website. We also encourage parents to follow our Twitter feed and Class Dojo to find out what learning has been taking place across the school.
