We offer a rich and diverse curriculum at Gaddesby Primary School. We have fully embedded our curriculum and have a range of enjoyable topics taking place across all year groups.
We ensure all of the children have a rich and broad curriculum, which is centred on developing and acquiring new skills through a variety of subjects, such as; Science, Geography, History, Design and Technology, Art, PE, RE and PSHE. We are unique as we have a specialist music teacher who teaches Music lessons to all of the children from year 1 through to Year 6. All of the children have access to ICT and this is delivered through all the different subjects (using our range of laptops and iPads). The classroom teaching and learning is further enhanced by interactive screens which are used by the teachers and the pupils.
The name of the phonics scheme that we use in EYFS and Year 1 is Letters and Sounds. All classes have five lessons of Maths and English each week, as well as reading lessons on daily basis. Our afternoons are organised into topic areas which are taught through a skills approach, topics change termly or half termly.
The curriculum is enhanced further through residential trips in years 4, 5 and 6. These trips give the children valuable learning experiences that can’t be replicated on site at school. In addition to residential trips, we offer an extensive range of day visits to places of interest throughout each year. These trips may include places such as; The National Space Centre, Warwick Castle and New Walk Museum just to mention a few.
