Other Subjects

Computing

Pupils follow the National Curriculum computing programme of study and also use technology to support their learning in other areas of the curriculum. Pupils have access to a range of technology including I-Pad minis and laptops. There are interactive whiteboards in all classes.

Science

Over time, pupils develop skills, knowledge and understanding of how to work scientifically. They also develop understanding of key scientific concepts in biology, chemistry and physics.

Design Technology

Children are encouraged to follow the design process by identifying opportunities, planning, making and evaluating what they have made.

Music

The children are encouraged to sing, use instruments, write their own compositions and listen carefully and thoughtfully to a range of music. We also provide opportunities for children to take part in instrumental lessons, workshops and have a school choir.

Art

The children are offered a wide range of media and artistic opportunities. Our aim is to develop their ability to choose the appropriate medium for the artistic task set. We also look at the work of other artists through visits to museums and galleries, visitors to school and using local artists and encourage the children to apply this knowledge to their own work.

Physical Education (PE)

Our school places physical activity at its core valuing the lifelong benefits this brings to all our pupils. We currently hold the Gold School games award and are recognised for the high quality of our PE. All our pupils have two lessons of PE each week and we offer a wide range of opportunities for pupils to participate in sporting events and competitions. There are also a variety of after-school sports clubs that children can join.

History and Geography

Our subject leader, has planned an exciting curriculum drawing on the national curriculum programmes of study that makes good use of the local environment and visits further afield when needed.

Religious education

Religious education is taught based on the Local Agreed Syllabus for Shropshire. Learning enables pupils to learn about Christianity and other faiths and also encourages pupils to develop a reflective, questioning approach allowing them to ponder life's big questions.

MFL
