Curriculum Vision

uWe want all of our children to be thoughtful, independent, resilient citizens giving them the knowledge and skills needed for a successful future in our diverse world.
uAt Timberley, we aim for our curriculum to be broad and to give pupils opportunities to achieve our curriculum vision.
uWe use Read, Write Inc. Phonics and Literacy and Language schemes to deliver our literacy curriculum
uWe use The White Rose scheme to deliver our maths curriculum.
uWe use the International Primary Curriculum to deliver half-termly/termly topics that cover a range of other subject areas in a cross-curricular approach, with global links in our diverse world. At times, we deliver our own non-IPC topics in order to ensure pupils have the opportunity to focus on learning specifically linked to the UK or to local contexts.
uOur curriculum builds upon knowledge and skills pupils have learnt in previous years.

Key Concept Grids

Our Key concept grids define the knowledge and skills that pupils need to learn each year. They are planned so that pupils build on what has been taught before and meet the expected learning goals as outlined by The National Curriculum. Local links are added to each subject area, with outdoor learning a vital part of learning – addressing typical gaps in knowledge by providing experiences to our pupils.  We pride ourselves on offering a broad and balanced curriculum.

Knowledge Organisers

Our Knowledge Organisers provide staff, pupils and parents with the key concepts they need to learn for each IPC unit. They are used to create learning displays, and links to essential knowledge about the best of what has been thought, said and done – for example key famous artists, scientific ideas or fiction texts. They support learning and home and the completion of homework.
