Curriculum

We love Learning!

At Bradley Green Primary Academy, we believe that the curriculum should provide children with the experiences and knowledge of the world they live in, as we truly believe that ‘Knowledge is power’. Threaded throughout our curriculum are the four core values: confidence, curiosity, challenge and respect, which we believe are vital life skills to enable children to achieve their potential. We provide the children with a rich and broad curriculum where all pupils can learn and achieve in our ‘Ambition for Excellence’. High quality texts drive our curriculum and enable children to be fully submerged in their learning.

 

Aims of the curriculum at Bradley Green

  • For children to acquire knowledge
  • For children to develop a wealth of vocabulary
  • For children to embed knowledge and vocabulary into long term memory
  • For children to be exposed to concepts/scenarios that their own personal experience wouldn’t allow for

 

Knowledge Organisers

 

At Bradley Green Primary Academy, we believe that ‘Knowledge is power’. From January 2019, we are introducing a new strategy to help deepen the children’s knowledge and understanding of the world. Each half term, the children will take home ‘Knowledge organisers’. This document contains the essential knowledge that the children will need to know as part of their topic. The knowledge organisers are designed to be used at home by parents to help children learn the information contained within them as well as in class. Our aim is that all children will be able to recall all the information confidently by the end of each topic. 

 

The children will be quizzed regularly on the content of both the current and any previous organisers. This has been proven to commit information to long-term memory.

 

We are confident that knowledge organisers will help children to develop a deeper knowledge of a wide range of topics and will significantly improve their vocabulary.

Knowledge Organisers are available to download from class pages.
