Curriculum Overiew

Curriculum

Learning at Harris Primary Academy Philip Lane is exciting, engaging and relevant.  It prepares children for the world we live in now and for our future.  In September 2019 we introduced a brand new curriculum which links learning to a theme.  Each half term there is a whole-school theme, which is then divided into year group specific aspects, and most subjects are taught through the theme where possible.

Our curriculum has been written to be in line with the new national curriculum for England. As half termly units are completed they will be published on our website.

There are daily lessons in English (Reading, Writing, Phonics, Spelling and Grammar) and Mathematics for children of all ages. This helps to make sure that they become confident readers, writers and mathematicians in the earliest years of their education.

Children also learn science, history, geography, RE, PE, art, design technology, drama, dance and music.  They study Personal, Social and Citizenship education and begin learning a modern foreign language in Year 3.  PE, Dance and Drama are taught by two specialist teachers which ensures children reach the very highest standards possible in all subjects.

Creativity, fun and self-expression are important aspects of Academy life and, across every subject, we make sure there is time and space for children to develop their imagination and their thinking skills.

Please see our Curriculum overviews for Autumn 1, Autumn 2, Spring 1, Spring 2, Summer 1 and Summer 2. Further overviews will appear in due course.

 

Curriculum Overview

We have our own, unique curriculum at Harris Primary Philip Lane that has been written especially for our children, and is fully in line with the new national curriculum.

Our curriculum is exciting, engaging and relevant for the world our children are in now and prepares them for the future.  Each half term there is one or two whole-school themes and these are then broken down into specific topics for each year group to study.  Each theme has key areas of the curriculum that covered but other subjects that are relevant to the theme are taught as well.

You can find our Curriculum Map here.
