In September 2012 we formally launched our new curriculum model – it is an engaging, exciting approach where all other subjects are delivered through a single 6-8 week topic.
We want children to enjoy their learning; develop enquiring minds, develop the personal qualities they need to be good citizens and develop all the skills they will need in order to succeed in life.
Children from Y1 to Y6 will learn through a series of IPC units of work. Each unit of work has a theme that today’s children find interesting and relevant. Examples include Rainforest, Mission to Mars and Beyond and Fit for Life. Linking subjects means that children can make lots of connections with their learning. We now know that the more connections that the brain can make, the better a child can learn. Copies of each Year Group Curriculum letter can be found on the relevant ‘Class’ page for your information.
The IPC focuses on a skills-based approach, developing adaptable and resilient globally-minded learners, prepared for the fast-changing world that they’ll be living and working in.
The IPC has been designed for children of all abilities and all learning styles, and encourages learning in groups as well as individual learning.
In order that parents and carers know what their child is learning, they are sent a letter at the beginning of each IPC unit which outlines what learning will be covered and how parents can help continue that learning at home if they choose.
Please find attached below a presentation about the IPC.
