Pupils will be supported to develop interests, knowledge and understanding across all curriculum subjects. We will put a great emphasis on English, mathematics and ICT.
Across the academy we will be using Edison Learning’s Connected Curriculum which will create exciting, engaging and motivating learning with clear connections made between subjects so that our pupils gain a sound, well-rounded education.
As well as reading, writing, ICT and mathematics, subjects include history, geography, design and technology, art, PE, music and science.
The Connected Curriculum material provides a thematic approach to learning and the intentional teaching of a range of Core Learning Skills. These skills are designed to develop a range of attributes in the children including the ability to work in a team, to look at strengths and areas for development, to plan their own learning etc. that will be useful beyond school and into the future.
Here at Willowdown Primary Academy we have adopted the Bug Club reading scheme. Bug Club is a whole school reading programme that hooks children into a lifelong love of reading through stunning books and an incredible online reading world, that are filled to the brim with kid-favourite characters.
