Our Curriculum

In September 2014 a new primary curriculum was introduced. Staff at Archdeacon Cambridge’s CE Primary School have worked together to produce a curriculum which is dynamic, broad, child centred, creative and exciting. Our curriculum aims to provide children with the knowledge and skills they need to become independent thinkers who will progress through secondary school and beyond, preparing them for life in 21st Century Britain.

At Archdeacon Cambridge’s CE Primary School we recognise that children need a curriculum that is wider than that identified by the National Curriculum.  As a Church of England School, Religious Education sits at the heart of all learning, with worship incorporating the National Society’s Christian Values.  We also ensure that learning opportunities are planned which include aspects of globalisation, environmental learning, sustainability, local community responsibility and enterprise and the core British Values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs. 

We are confident that through the dedication of all our staff we can ensure that all children receive a curriculum that is inspiring and appropriate to them as individuals.

Our teaching and learning includes all statutory areas of the curriculum. Whether teaching in Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 or Key Stage 2 teachers strive to plan lessons, activities, visitors and trips which stimulate curiosity, engage interest and make lessons enjoyable. The curriculum for each of the stages provides a balance appropriate to the child’s age.

Each Key Stage is divided into year groups as shown below;

Foundation Stage

Nursery             3-4 years
Reception         4-5 years


Key Stage 1

Year 1               5-6 years
Year 2               6-7 years


Key Stage 2

Year 3               7-8 years
Year 4               8-9 years
Year 5               9-10 years
Year 6               10-11 years

Core texts

The books which provide the core theme for each half term are carefully chosen to cover the full range of genres, real and fictional worlds, heroes and heroines and opportunities to discuss moral and social dilemmas. As in RE, children are encouraged through discussion and drama, to explore their responses to the lives, problems and values of others and the social restraints or opportunities characters encounter. We acknowledge the enabling capacity of the arts to develop imagination, inspiration, co-operation, self-confidence and tenacity, while communicating moral and social values. Through debate, role play, writing for a variety of purposes, poetry and play scripts the children are able to express their understanding of the richness and challenge of the lives of others.

Subject Specific Information

English
Maths

A context for Maths in everyday life

Core Beliefs

Mathematics equips pupils with the uniquely powerful set of tools to understand and change the world. These include; logical reasoning, calculating, problem solving skills and the ability to think in abstract ways.

Mathematics is important in everyday life. It is integral to all aspects of life and with this in mind we endeavour to ensure that children develop a positive and enthusiastic attitude towards mathematics that will remain with them for life.

Archdeacon Cambridge’s School follows the 2014 curriculum, primarily through the use of Abacus Evolve, which provides detailed guidance, planning and resources for the implementation of mathematics. This ensures consistency, continuity and progression in the teaching of mathematics. In Early Years the curriculum is guided by the Early Years Foundation Stage profile. 

We aim to provide the pupils with a mathematics curriculum which will produce individuals who are numerate, creative, independent, inquisitive, evaluative and confident.  We also provide a stimulating environment and adequate resources so that pupils can develop their mathematical skills to their full potential.

Provision

Mathematics is taught as a discrete lesson (with cross curricular links where appropriate e.g. Science). Pupils are provided with a variety of opportunities to develop and extend their mathematical skills in and across each phase of education.

Lessons follow The New Curriculum for Mathematics and use Abacus Evolve materials. A weekly mental arithmetic lesson is taught in Years 3 – 6. Children in Year 3 are taught as a whole class and in Years 4 – 6 the more able children are taught as a group, separately, for a minimum of four lessons a week.  Children are supported by HLTAs and teaching assistants/learning support staff where appropriate.

Calculations

Children in Years 1 and 2 will be given a really solid foundation in the basic building blocks of mental and written arithmetic. Through being taught place value, children will develop an understanding of how numbers work, so that they are confident with 2-digit numbers and beginning to read and say numbers above 100. In Lower Key Stage 2, children build on the concrete and conceptual understandings they have gained in Key Stage 1 to develop a real mathematical understanding of the four operations, in particular developing arithmetical competence in relation to larger numbers. By upper Key Stage 2, children should be fluent in these calculations and will move on to performing arithmetic operations with both decimals and fractions.

Addition & subtraction

KS1

Children are taught to use place value and number facts to add and subtract numbers mentally and they will develop a range of strategies to enable them to discard the ‘counting in 1s’ or fingers-based methods of Key Stage 1. In particular, children will learn to add and subtract multiples and near multiples of 10, 100 and 1000, and will become fluent in complementary addition as an accurate means of achieving fast and accurate answers to 3-digit subtractions. Standard written methods for adding larger numbers are taught, learned and consolidated, and written column subtraction is also introduced.

LOWER KS2

Children are taught to use place value and number facts to add and subtract numbers mentally and they will develop a range of strategies to enable them to discard the ‘counting in 1s’ or fingers-based methods of Key Stage 1. In particular, children will learn to add and subtract multiples and near multiples of 10, 100 and 1000, and will become fluent in complementary addition as an accurate means of achieving fast and accurate answers to 3-digit subtractions. Standard written methods for adding larger numbers are taught, learned and consolidated, and written column subtraction is also introduced.

UPPER KS2

Children will consolidate their use of written procedures in adding and subtracting whole numbers with up to 6 digits and also decimal numbers with up to 2 decimal places. Mental strategies for adding and subtracting increasingly large numbers will also be taught. These will draw upon children’s robust understanding of place value and knowledge of number facts. Negative numbers will be added and subtracted.

Multiplication & division

KS1

Children will be taught to count in 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s, and will relate this skill to repeated addition. Children will meet and begin to learn the associated ×2, ×3, ×5 and ×10 tables. Engaging in a practical way with the concept of repeated addition and the use of arrays enables children to develop a preliminary understanding of multiplication, and asking them to consider how many groups of a given number make a total will introduce them to the idea of division. Children will also be taught to double and halve numbers, and will thus experience scaling up or down as a further aspect of multiplication and division.

LOWER KS2

This key stage is the period during which all the multiplication and division facts are thoroughly memorised, including all facts up to 12 × 12. Efficient written methods for multiplying or dividing a 2-digit or 3-digit number by a 1-digit number are taught, as are mental strategies for multiplication or division with large but ‘friendly’ numbers, e.g. when dividing by 5 or multiplying by 20.

UPPER KS2

Efficient and flexible strategies for mental multiplication and division are taught and practised, so that children can perform appropriate calculations even when the numbers are large, such as 40 000 × 6 or 40 000 ÷ 8. In addition, it is in Years 5 and 6 that children extend their knowledge and confidence in using written algorithms for multiplication and division.

Maths Evening

The school will be running a maths evening (date TBC) to demonstrate how maths is taught and how children can be supported with maths at home. The event will look at the curriculum taught in key stage 1, lower key stage 2 (Years 3 and 4) and upper key stage 2 (Years 5 and 6).

Science

Living Eggs

Every year we are excited to welcome 10 eggs in an incubator.  Children and adults from Nursery to Year 6 are enthralled to watch the transition from egg to fluffy chick. This experience is used as a stimulus for learning about living things and life cycles.

 

RE
Art and Design

Art and Design

Our curriculum at Archdeacon Cambridge’s CE Primary School provides the children with opportunities to develop their knowledge and skills to explore, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. The curriculum units, based on the skills progression developed by school staff, provide an exciting context for children to develop their artistic skills and knowledge of great artists. As the children move through the school, they are supported to build on these skills within Art and Design lessons. Their development is also supported by opportunities to participate in extra-curricular clubs, visits to art galleries and to work alongside visiting artists. Every year children have opportunities to participate in local Art competitions such as the Fourth Plinth School’s Award or the Richmond in Bloom Poster Competition.

The skills the children will develop as they move through the school are outlined in our Art Skills Progression below.

These are some websites that might improve your Art and Design subject knowledge and inspire children to develop skills:

Computing

At Archdeacon Cambridge’s CE Primary School, we use the National Curriculum as the starting point for all of our teaching in Computing. Working with guidance from the CAS and our local authority advisor, the Computing skills progression for each year group was developed by the school teaching staff, allowing us to create links between subjects and inspiring our children to learn.

Our aim in teaching Computing is to develop children’s ability to use and create, using IT as a tool across all areas of their lives. We hope that this will allow them to become informed consumers and provide them with the basic skills to become developers.

We teach a broad and balanced curriculum, varying between teaching discrete IT lessons for key IT skills and cross-curricular lessons to emphasis the use of IT as a tool. Our Digital Citizenship curriculum and work with the local authority online safety consultant encourages children to become responsible IT users and has strong links to our PSHE curriculum.

Please see the curriculum overviews in the Year Groups section of the website to learn more about how Computing fits into the cross curricular learning at our school.

Drama and Performing Arts

Drama and the Performing Arts

Although not timetabled as a subject, drama and the performing arts are very much part of our curriculum offering children another medium through which they can express their thoughts and ideas.  Year group assemblies, displays, exhibitions, instrument tuition, participation in the Infant and Junior choirs, History Days such as Victorian, Tudor and  Roman days, RE day, Maths Week, Book Week, the celebration of the European Day of Languages and concerts are all expressions of the talents and learning opportunities developed through the curriculum. Regular visits are made to theatres, museums, galleries and historical houses as we move our curriculum out into the local environment.

Design and Technology

Design and Technology

At Archdeacon Cambridge’s CE Primary School, we use the National Curriculum as the starting point for all of our teaching in Design and Technology, including Cooking. The Design and Technology curriculum and skills progression for each year group was developed by the school teaching staff, allowing us to create links between subjects and inspiring our children to learn.

Our main aim in this subject is to give children the opportunity and inspiration to develop skills, knowledge and understanding to design and make products that solve real and relevant problems within a variety of contexts. We aim to create resourceful and enterprising designers who can approach challenges in creative and innovative ways. We are aware that high-quality design and technology education makes an essential contribution to the creativity, culture, wealth and well-being of the nation.

We also seek to promote a ‘pro-food’ ethos in schools and heighten awareness of the integral part that food and a whole school approach plays in children’s health, wellbeing and attainment. We are fortunate to be able to use The Nest for cooking, and Mrs Ramsland cooks with each year group over the course of the year, linking the cooking activities to the Class topic or theme wherever possible.

We teach a broad and balanced curriculum, enriching lessons with visits to areas of interest as well as in-school workshops from visiting drama companies or public speakers.

Please see the curriculum overviews in the Year Groups section of the website to learn more about how Design and Technology fits into the cross curricular learning at our school.

Foreign Languages - French

French

At Archdeacon Cambridge’s CE Primary School, we use the National Curriculum as the starting point for all of our teaching in French. The French curriculum and skills progression for each year group was developed by the school teaching staff, allowing us to create links between subjects and inspiring our children to learn.

Our main aim in this subject is to create ‘linguists’ who have the confidence to speak in another language for the purpose of meaningful communication. We develop the skills of listening, speaking reading and writing between years 2-6.  We teach a broad and balanced curriculum, enriching lessons by engaging in such activities as cake making following a French recipe, cheese tasting, following traditional celebrations associated with the Christian calendar (Epiphany and the festival of Sainte Barbe), as well as  “French Day” which is a whole day emerged in the culture and language of France

Please see the curriculum overviews in the Year Groups section of the website to learn more about how French fits into the cross curricular learning at our school.

Outdoor Learning

Outdoor learning environment

Learning outdoors is part of childhood and remains as part of the curriculum throughout the school. In Foundation Stage the children have daily access to their own Wildlife Area as they choose activities to explore. Teachers plan for specific outdoor areas as a focus. The use of our Wildlife Area at the back of the school with its Stag Beetle Fortress, child friendly pond, outdoor classroom and specially designed habitats providing homes for a wide range of insects and other creatures, offers learning across all areas of the curriculum. The area set aside for herbs and vegetables provides some produce for our school kitchen and also an opportunity for children to experience the whole cycle of food production through to consumption on a small scale. We reuse and recycle whenever and wherever we can giving children first hand experience of sustainability in action. All year groups use the Wildlife Area whether for Maths, RE, Science or as a stimulus for writing and contribute to the annual cycle of growing vegetables and plants.

Physical Education

Physical Education

PE is a fundamental aspect of the curriculum Archdeacon Cambridge’s. Children experience a wide range of sports and activities, both indoors and out throughout the key stages.

From the start of children’s education at Archdeacon, children are expected to be actively involved in their learning and our children in Early Years have continuous access to a large Outdoor Learning area.

We follow the Real PE scheme which helps children to understand the physical skills or agility, balance and co-ordination required for different sports and activities as well supporting children in developing the cognitive, emotional, personal and creative aspects of PE. We also consider health and fitness during PE lessons, making particular links to learning in Science and PSHE.

Indoor PE
We are very fortunate to have our own heated swimming pool and swimming is taught to children from Reception to Year 6 throughout the year.

Other indoor sports that are taught include dance, gymnastics and use of the apparatus in both the Large and Small halls.

Outdoor PE
During outdoor PE, children are taught to apply their PE skills to many different sports and games, including hockey, netball and basketball, cricket, football and athletics. Children are also encouraged to use their understanding of skills and strategies to create their own strategy games.

The school is fortunate to have a large playground and to be able to use Twickenham Green for sporting activities. We also have a covered, heated swimming pool on site. Children have two hours PE time each week which is divided into one hour outdoor games and a second hour which is used for gymnastics, swimming and dance at different times of the year. In games lessons children learn the skills to take part in team games and to develop their individual abilities. Teams from the school take part in all Borough wide tournaments in recent years our cricket team has been very successful at Borough, Pan London and County level earning them a trophy and a trip to Lords.

Beyond the school day
Children have many opportunities to participate in sporting clubs and competitive tournaments and competitions. Clubs run by school include football, netball, cricket, rugby and athletics. In addition, basketball, athletics, tennis and dance clubs are provided by subject specialists.

 

We take part in borough organised events including Borough Sports and the borough swimming gala, selecting teams to represent our school.

Personal, Social, Health and Economic Education

At Archdeacon Cambridge’s CE Primary School, we use the National Curriculum as the starting point for all of our teaching in PSHE. The PSHE curriculum and skills progression for each year group was developed by the school teaching staff, allowing us to create links between subjects and inspiring our children to learn.

Our main aim in this subject is to create children who become confident individuals who are physically, emotionally and socially healthy; to become responsible citizens who make a positive contribution to society and embrace change; to be able to manage risks together and think of their own and others well-being.

We teach a broad and balanced curriculum, making links with other areas of learning and enriching lessons with visits to areas of interest as well as in-school workshops and visits from public speakers. Recently for example, Year 6 have taken part in the Junior Citizens project, Year 2 have had scooter training and Reception have been visited by the local vet. We also promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs. Actively promoting the values means challenging opinions or behaviours in school that are contrary to fundamental British values. Children have been learning about British Values through PSHE as well as during RE lessons and Collective Worship.

As part of PSHE we have a School Council who are a representative group of students who have been proposed and elected by their peers to represent their views and raise issues with the Staff and Governors of our school.

Our PSHE curriculum is currently under review. We are using the PSHE association guidance to create a new scheme of work, making links to our current curriculum.

Please see the curriculum overviews in the Year Groups section of the website to learn more about how PSHE fits into the cross curricular learning at our school.
