!Frozen Lands! Our Exciting Spring Term Topic
Please take a moment to view details of our exciting new Spring term Topic; this is an example of the ethos behind our Creative Curriculum at St Loys.
Don’t forget to have a look at our Galleries to see some of our Frozen Lands and Polar Day photos.
We believe learning is a journey shaped by a string of amazing adventures: to distant lands, other periods of time, new places within ourselves. We want our adventurers to write without reluctance and to see books as irresistible windows to other worlds. Our desire is that their love of journeying gives them a ravenous appetite for learning.
The sense of moving forwards on a journey mirrors our commitment to the mastery curriculum by offering our learners opportunities to build up their skills progressively and systematically.
These opportunities are embedded within rich learning contexts, presided over by stimulating literary texts.
Our daily ‘Warm Up for Writing’ sessions introduce children to the mechanisms of the writing process. The rest of the day offers them opportunities to apply their writing skills across the curriculum.
Some subjects are taught discretely, but when it is organic and meaningful, every effort is made to incorporate the learning into the topic and text theme.
Our learners have opportunities to solve problems, apply knowledge and take risks with their thinking. We teach our children that risk‐taking and failing can be viewed positively as learning opportunities. Failing forwards is part of journeying.
