Our Learning & Curriculum

Hand in Hand we Learn

 

'Creative, Caring & Confident'

We are curious, take risks and adapt our skills and knowledge to succeed in our learning.

We show kindness and concern for each other. We take pride in ourselves and everything we do.

We ask questions and readily take on challenges.

 

 

Learning at Longford

 Here at Longford, our aim is to produce independent, forward thinking and confident learners who are adaptable to modern advances with the ability to shape their own futures. 

The national curriculum is delivered through carefully planned out topics, each of which begins with a 'fascinator' to engage the children with the topic and stimulate and encourage the development of questions, awe and wonder.  Fascinators can take the form of trips, visitors and staged events.  Meaningful links are achieved through carefully selected texts which complement the topic and broaden our children's vocabulary and understanding.  Children then continue to immerse themselves in their topics, taking ownership of their learning through the development and application of new skills. Where knowledge and skills do not fit into the theme they are taught as stand alone projects to ensure our children have access to a broad and balanced curriculum.

We encourage parents to be as involved in their child's learning as possible, through shared reading and homework projects related to topic areas covered throughout the school year.
