Fairfield Progression

Below is a breakdown of the Knowledge, Skills and Understanding expected to be covered in each non-core subject area (including science) set out in year group expectations. In most subjects there is an additional section which is aimed at challenging more able pupils.  

Continuity and progression in the curriculum is built around a set of matrices known as essential knowledge, understanding and key skills within subject disciplines. These are broken into year group expectations and have additional challenges for the most able learners. The ‘Essential Knowledge, Skills and Understanding’ matrices within the Learning Challenge Curriculum allow Fairfield to guarantee that the learners’ essential skills are being developed, alongside National Curriculum requirements (where appropriate).

 Knowledge Organisers

We intend for our curriculum to include important and significant knowledge that will be life-changing in as much as it will be knowledge that pupils will take with them for the rest of their lives. One of the main features in this is to have a 'knowledge-rich' curriculum. Across all subjects our teachers have created Knowledge Organisers. These are designed to help show what pupils should know at the end of a unit of teaching. They also provide a reminder of the important 'subject specific' language that pupils ought to know.  In addition, pupils should know key information related to the topic. we make these Knowledge Organisers available to all pupils from the beginning of the unit of work to allow them to reflect on what knowledge is being taught.

The aim of the curriculum is to motivate and challenge our children to learn through research and experiential learning.  The curriculum is designed to be meaningful to our children within their own contexts and to bring learning to life.  This is done through the teaching of the subject and through the use of school visits, WOW starters, use of our Imaginarium, use of our Outdoor and Nature areas and events where we have engaged with parents.  Details of such events can be found by clicking here.

 

The children write to a pre determined audience so that they are motivated to think carefully about the presentation of their learning. 

 

 

 

 

 

The children's learning is carefully assessed through planned assessment opportunities.
