Our Exciting Curriculum
At The Humberston C of E Primary, we have decided to follow a project based learning approach where the children are at the heart of all decision making processes regarding the topics we choose. We provide a broad, balanced and flexible curriculum that is responsive to individual needs and interests of the children. We change our topics frequently. This allows for breadth and depth of learning as the children are able to study a vast variety of areas of interest to them.
Towards the end of each term, the teachers hold a planning session with the children where the class put forward suggestions for topics to study. Once all suggestions have been made, the teachers within each year group phase collate the children's suggestions and work from our skills based curriculum to ensure we choose topics that will cover all curriculum areas throughout the year.
To ensure progress is measurable, each subject coordinator has developed a long term plan and a skills based planning and assessment document for their subject which clearly outlines the progression that the children will follow. This enables the teachers to plan work that is suited to the individual needs of the children and to assess each child's level of attainment in every subject.
Educational Visits and Visitors
We place a high level of importance on school visits and try to have a visit each term as we believe they bring our topics to life.
