Long Term Curriculum Maps 

Our KS1 and KS2 Curriculum Rolling programmes detail a progressive curriculum which is broad and balanced and develops curiosity and excitement.

 

At Roby Park Primary School, we offer a curriculum that gives the children the opportunity to acquire the social and academic knowledge, skills and understanding of the world that will adequately prepare them for the next stage of their learning and ultimately for later life.

Our curriculum is founded on basic principles. The curriculum aims to be:

  • Broad – it introduces children to a wide range of knowledge, understanding and skills.
  • Balanced – each part is allocated sufficient time relevant to the children’s age and experience.
  • Relevant – subjects are taught in a way that relates to children’s lives and experience now and in the future.
  • Memorable – the curriculum provides memorable experiences and rich opportunities for high quality learning and wider personal development and well- being.
  • Matched – subjects are taught in such a way that matches children’s individual needs and aptitudes.

 

Science

This year we have adopted the Science Bug scheme of work which is designed around the new curriculum. It is full of exciting lessons with a focus on easily manageable hands-on science. It has a straightforward structure with six units for each phase, based on a two year rolling programme, and six lessons in each unit.

Music

Music is essentially a practical subject. The curriculum encourages pupils to sing, compose and use percussion instruments in order to develop their creative skills. Through active listening, pupils’ awareness and understanding of different periods, styles and genres are developed.
The school provides pupils with plenty of opportunities to enjoy making music through learning, for example, to play an instrument and singing with choirs. Musicians are employed to help deliver this specialist subject particularly in Year 1 & Year 4. Year 1 learn to play the recorders whilst Year 4 learn to play the violin.
Roby Park Primary puts a lot of emphasis on children enjoying music at whatever level and we strive to ensure that children are inspired by talented musicians and develop a love of music.
Music is taught, by class teachers, using the scheme of work from Charanga. Charanga is also used for music material in assemblies.
