Curriculum

Follow this link to view our topic mapping


At Dove First School we believe that every child is a unique individual.  We aim to develop them both as learners and as individuals, through a wide and varied curriculum.  Each half-term the children work on a broad topic that develops all areas of the curriculum. 

 

Each child will be given the opportunity to develop their potential.  The National Curriculum is taught throughout the school and underpins our creative curriculum, which secures for all our children an entitlement to learn in a variety of ways.  We place great emphasis on first hand experiences and learning beyond the classroom that embraces a variety of teaching and learning styles.  The children are encouraged through hands on experience, to develop their skills and talent.

 

Great emphasis is placed on developing the key skills for future learning.  We believe it is important to equip our children to participate in a rapidly changing technological society.  So all our children have access to our computer suite to further enhance their learning and develop their IT skills of exploration, analysing and problem solving.

We believe that a broad curriculum is essential so also provide specialist music tuition for Years 1 and 2 and free violin tuition for all Year 3 and 4.

Chidlren from Years 2, 3 and 4 also go swimming once a week in the autumn and summer terms.
