CURRICULUM OVERVIEW

Key Stage 1 and 2

My Place in the World

Our curriculum aims to nurture in our pupil’s a curiosity about the world around them – to ignite within them a real passion for learning. We strongly believe in bringing learning to life and offering all the children at Camp a curriculum that is exciting, purposeful and relevant for the world that they live in. It will enable them to grow, both in the knowledge and understanding they have, but also into the responsible citizens they need to be in the future, to take up their place in the world.

PSHE is at the core of what we do and enables our children to become independent, confident, healthy and responsible members of our society. Through our bespoke whole school approach, we support the children to develop intellectually, socially, morally and spiritually. In an ever changing society, we provide our children with a strong understanding of the diverse world around them and support them in playing a positive role in contributing to the school and the wider community.

Weaving through the heart of our curriculum are our three curriculum drivers: Global and Local Community; Spiritual and Moral; Environment. We use the drivers to underpin the learning and experiences we provide at Camp, in each term and in every year group, and our curriculum offer is enriched by these consistent foci. They drive our intention to develop in all our pupils their understanding of “My place in the world”.

Global and Local Community

We want children at Camp to be aware of the wider world and have a sense of their role as a global citizen. Children will participate and contribute to our school and local community as well as recognising that they are part of a wider global community. We want children to be explicitly taught how their actions can have a positive impact on the world. They will respect and value diversity, learn about social justice, challenge stereotypes and be willing to act to make the world a more equitable place to be.

Spiritual and Moral

We want the children at Camp to demonstrate a deep respect for different people’s faiths, feelings and values. We believe that by establishing a strong moral code and a focus on individual well being, it will have a positive impact on the way children view the religious and cultural diversity in other people’s lives.

Environment

We want children to learn in our beautiful school outdoor environment and make use of our extensive grounds and allotments to connect with nature. We want them to care about environmental issues that affect them and the world around them. Our children need to be equipped with the skills and knowledge to make decisions that will impact on the local environment and the planet as a whole. A think global, act local approach is built into our curriculum at Camp and through our commitment to being an Eco school.

Our curriculum is broad and balanced in terms of subject coverage, ambitious in its aim for all pupils to access the content and make progress through it and is underpinned by current research (example). We have worked in consultation with our school stakeholders to develop a curriculum that is shared and understood by all and responds to the needs of our pupils in our learning community.

The impact of our curriculum will be seen through every child achieving academically to reach their full potential.  The children will leave us as socially and emotional literate individuals with an enhanced cultural awareness. They will be lifelong learners ready and equipped to make a contribution to society and to take up their place in the world.

EYFS

Our Nursery and Reception class follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) statutory framework which sets the standards that school and childcare providers must meet for the learning, development and care of children from birth to 5.

The framework sets the standards that all early years providers must meet to ensure that children learn and develop well, ensures children are kept healthy and safe ensures that children have the knowledge and skills they need to start school.

At Camp in the Early Years learn children learn through play and through the positive relationships and stimulating environment they are immersed in. They are encouraged to learn from their mistakes, take risks and are supported to feel confident to do this within our setting. We recognise that children develop quickly in the Early Years and believe a child’s experiences, early on, will have a major impact and shape their future life chances.

The children are taught through a mixture of Adult directed activities and child initiated learning opportunities and are questioned and supported by our team of dedicated staff who ensure the children are happy and excited to learn and are ready and prepared for the next stage of their development.

CURRICULUM

In Nursery and Reception (Early Years) we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum which supports children from birth to 5 years old.
The children learn through play and through the positive relationships and stimulating environment they are immersed in. They are encouraged to learn from their mistakes, take risks and are supported to feel confident to do this within our setting. We recognise that children develop quickly in the Early Years and believe a child’s experiences, early on, will have a major impact and shape their future life chances.
The children are taught through a mixture of Adult directed activities and child initiated learning opportunities and are questioned and supported by our team of dedicated staff who ensure the children are happy and excited to learn and are ready and prepared for the next stage of their development.

Our environment provides engaging and exciting opportunities to learn in all seven areas of learning:
· Communication and language development involves giving children opportunities to experience a rich language environment; to develop their confidence and skills in expressing themselves; and to speak and listen in a range of situations
· Physical development involves providing opportunities for young children to be active and interactive; and to develop their co-ordination, control, and movement. Children must also be helped to understand the importance of physical activity, and to make healthy choices in relation to food
· Personal, social and emotional development involves helping children to develop a positive sense of themselves, and others; to form positive relationships and develop respect for others; to develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings; to understand appropriate behaviour in groups; and to have confidence in their own abilities
· Literacy development involves encouraging children to link sounds and letters and to begin to read and write. Children must be given access to a wide range of reading materials (books, poems, and other written materials) to ignite their interest
· Mathematics involves providing children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using numbers, calculating simple addition and subtraction problems; and to describe shapes, spaces, and measure
· Understanding the world involves guiding children to make sense of their physical world and their community through opportunities to explore, observe and find out about people, places, technology and the environment

From September 2021 we will be following the new curriculum

 

Our Early Years Environment

Our Nursery and Reception are set across two large classrooms. The classrooms are spacious and bright, and have access to our outdoor learning environment. This is being developed into defined areas and includes a canopy area which enables children to play outside in all weathers, a climbing area with stepping stones, a bridge and wooden boat, a mud kitchen, a construction area, water play, a large art wall, an investigation, sensory and bug hotel area, a brand new giant sand pit and a great range of interactive play equipment.
