Creative Curriculum

Aims and Entitlement

Our Creative Curriculum is still evolving. It is driven by the need to develop pupil’s skills and knowledge in a creative and enjoyable way. It is also planned to allow for development of a more personalized learning philosophy and takes into account special events or areas of focus taken on board by the school.

The Creative Curriculum is designed to cover the content of the New National Curriculum 2014.  It is designed to address the knowledge of the new curriculum alongside the core skills of problem solving, co-operation, communication, appraisal, enquiry and independence. At Hemlington Hall Academy we use the term Context for Learning when planning the wider curriculum beyond the core subjects.

The Creative Curriculum allows for meaningful and exciting learning opportunities to be planned across the subjects.  Excellence and Enjoyment are achieved through a curriculum which fosters enquiry and fun.  A learning experience is attached to each context for learning and contexts will be taught termly or half termly.

Each year group has an overview of the planned contexts for the Year. These are now available on the school website.

The responsibility for the Creative Curriculum whole school monitoring lies with Mrs. Warner.

 

Ten Things about Context…

  1. Our History, Geography, Art and DT are delivered through Cross-Curricular learning which ensures children are immersed within their learning – a strength which is evident throughout school (identified by Ofsted and other visitors to the school).
  2. Context has a high-profile at Hemlington Hall Academy; children love learning, staff show enthusiasm for teaching and it is bouncing off the walls!
  3. The Context Overviews show how coverage is broad and balanced – all year groups have Contexts linked to the four subjects which are in line with the National Curriculum.
  4. Knowledge and skills are taught in a progressive meaningful way; evidence in books shows how our children are moving through the milestones.
  5. The introduction of ‘Awe and Wonder’ days has allowed all year groups to dedicate focused time to these subjects.
  6. Enrichments and Visits are utilised to allow our curriculum to come to life! These hooks for learning are inspirational for children.
  7. School is well resourced with each Context box providing artefacts and secondary sources. Cornerstones has also been used to support our Creative Curriculum where appropriate.
  8. Parents are informed of children’s progress in History, Geography, Art and DT through annual reports and are able to discuss their child’s progress with class teachers.
  9. Reading and Writing are closely linked to contexts which gives children the opportunity to develop their knowledge across the school week.
  10. Assessment of foundation subjects is our main focus for next academic year.
