Science and the Creative Curriculum
Science and RE are taught as a discrete timetabled lesson in all year groups from year 1 to year 6. Other foundation subjects are currently taught a topic based approach which is closely linked to a progressive skills based in all foundation areas, this includes P.S.H.E and E-Safety.
We promote healthy eating and cooking through Design and Technology and Science units of work and have a science and DT room with cookers and areas for practical learning. We also have a designated Art Area and year groups regularly use our Woodland area for Bushcraft and other creative learning experiences.
Information, Communication and Technology (ICT) is taught through all subjects. We have specialist IT room with thirty computers and three class trolleys of Chrome books as well as class ipads.
We have a specialist music teacher who delivers the music curriculum to all year groups from Reception through to year 6. Over the past two years year 6 have been part of the Whole Class Instrumental Teaching led by Norfolk music hub. All year 6 children have been given a p-bone on loan for the year so that they can have weekly class lessons and also have the opportunity to practice at home. We also offer a range of peripatetic music lessons and support opportunities for all children through the pupil premium funding.
We have a specialist PE instructor who delivers the PE curriculum to all year groups from Reception to year 6. We offer a wide range of lunchtime and after school sports clubs and we are proud of the many successes that Woodlands have achieved over the years. We have a strong track record in winning a wide variety of sporting events at local, County and National level.
