Text-led Learning – Our Approach to The Curriculum

We link our termly themes to a text, or range of texts in Key stage 1. This allows for a smooth transfer of skills from English lessons, where children will learn about text structure,audience, grammar, spelling and develop their reading comprehension, into their afternoon Irresistible Learning sessions. This gives learning a real meaning and a hook to engage the children into the topic. Classrooms are set up to reflect the topic being taught: displays, role play areas and resources, such as books and artifacts are used. Topics are planned termly based on the childrens previous experience and skills , the expectations of the National Curriculum and around the questions the children have asked about the theme.

Irresistible Learning





In addition to our curriculum, we aim to provide the children with as many experiences as possible before they leave us in year 6. We have created a ’50 things to do before you leave’ passport. We plan activities based on these in our termly curriculum planning meetings.
