At Timbercroft Primary School we believe learning should be exciting - our ultimate aim is to provide a highly enjoyable, creative curriculum which not only incorporates the National Curriculum but the needs, thoughts and ideas of every learner in our school. Our creative curriculum ensures that all of our pupils are motivated, engaged and enthused about every learning experience, inspiring them to become lifelong learners.
At Timbercroft our teaching and learning takes place within a topic based curriculum approach. This means that wherever possible we group our subjects around a topic. This topic-based structure has been effective in enthusing staff and pupils because of the many creative opportunities for links across subject areas. It covers the National Curriculum points of study in a way that makes learning interesting and engaging for all of our pupils. The design of the curriculum takes into account the needs of all pupils. It values their diversity and allows them to make excellent progress within their learning.
The curriculum we have developed is based on an annual cycle where each curriculum year is divided into five distinct topics and one topic which children work towards an exiting exit point which we call our 'Big Outcomes' where they can share their learning with parents and friends of the school. This topic encourages entrepreneurial skills with the children planning a visit, planning what they will do to raise the money and enjoying the visit at the end of the year as a result of all of their hard work.
Children learn in our school. They are excited about the topics and are able to develop a wide range of skills that they will then be able to carry with them throughout their lives.
