Curriculum

How do we deliver the National Curriculum at Hillside?

At Hillside we are passionate about our children learning through a creative approach called enquiry based learning. Every half term each year group begins with a question for the children to investigate, which is based upon the National Curriculum requirements for their age range. These questions have an historical, scientific or geographical focus but during the half term other national curriculum subjects are woven into the children’s learning. We also use our enquiry work for our children to apply key literacy skills including reading and writing as well as mathematics.

During each half term the children gain essential knowledge to be able to answer their question and in addition to this have an opportunity to develop key learning skills such as listening, team work, evaluating and persevering.

Should you require any further information about the school curriculum, please contact your child's class teacher or key stage leader.
