Here at Dersingham VA Primary School, we take pride in providing a creative topic-based curriculum that inspires our children to develop a range of skills and real enjoyment of learning; and has excited us as staff to deliver quality teaching and learning opportunities. We provide a creative curriculum that encompasses core and foundation subjects and enables us to provide a high standard of teaching and learning.
We aim to foster a life-long love of learning, through adopting a highly practical, skills-based cross-curricular approach. Our Creative Curriculum aims to deliver an engaging, exciting and relevant twenty-first-century education that will equip our children with the skills required to be independent and responsible citizens.
We believe children learn better when they are encouraged to use their imagination and apply their learning to engaging contexts. Our curriculum will provide lots of learning challenges throughout the academic year that will require children to solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding effectively across the curriculum.
Alongside our curriculum we have a clear progression framework, which allows us to track children’s progress and identify their individual learning needs.
Power of Reading
In addition to our creative curriculum, our school is a Power of Reading school. Power of Reading raises engagement and attainment in reading and writing; exploring high-quality children's texts in depth.
The teaching sequences provide meaningful contexts and purposes for writing and as a result, children at our school thoroughly enjoy reading and exploring texts.
For more information about Power of Reading, please speak to your class teacher, Mrs Harmer or have a look at the website.
