We aim for our pupils to make progress by moving through a carefully sequenced body of skills and essential knowledge that build on what has been taught before.
The curriculum at Fielding is underpinned by our four core values: respect, resilience, empathy and reflection and by sustainability. Pupils' learning is centred on our locality and wherever possible through first-hand experience.
The key aims of our curriculum are for pupils to:
- learn to read and write, as well as becoming mathematicians, preparing them for the next stage of their education and allowing them to be confident individuals;
- learn how to understand themselves and manage their emotions, understanding others better;
- understand and explain the world around them now and from the past;
- be active, compete in competitions and work with others in a team, learning how to be a humble winner and resilient loser;
- be creative, practice, rehearse and perform with others;
- understand other cultures, beliefs and languages;
- learn about sustainable living, understanding global environmental issues.
Pupils will have the opportunity to do this through:
- accessing high-quality English and mathematics lessons and reading a rich selection of books;
- PHSE, RE, Values-based education, MindUp and play;
- science, humanities, learning and interacting with members of their community;
- sports tournaments and other competitions across the curriculum;
- music, art and other opportunities to perform;
- French and RE lessons, humanities, cooking, Forest School, gardening and PHSE lessons;
- learning about the UN 17 sustainable development goals.
The key concepts that are weaved through our curriculum include: industry, change, civilisation, invention, equality, settlement, empire and monarchy, economy, development, trade, infrastructure, justice, creativity, democracy, curiosity and resilience.
The curriculum is organised and delivered through:
- discrete teaching of core subjects; English, mathematics and science;
- a focus on emotional well-being through Values, Personal Social and Health Education, and MindUp;
- specialist teaching for French, music and physical education;
- the Fielding Learning Challenge Curriculum (FLCC). FLCC provides a structure through which history, geography, art, design and technology and RE are taught. Within each ‘challenge’ opportunities are planned for pupils to use and deepen their ‘essential knowledge’ within a year group and across a key stage;
- enrichment opportunities through gardening, cooking, residential trips and a termly menu of extra-curricular activities.
Learning in our curriculum subjects is carefully planned, sequenced and linked. Our curriculum overview shows our sequence. The essential knowledge, including vocabulary, that we aim for each child to learn is outlined in our FLCC Knowledge Organisers.
