At Moss Hall, we have created a curriculum that aligns with our values and vision for all. Our curriculum aims to develop kind, hardworking children who know and can talk about what is right or wrong in the world and their ideas to make a difference.
Over the past year, staff have researched and worked together to understand how children learn best and how we can optimise memory. We have created lesson sequences that aim to have a lasting effect on children’s excitement for and about learning
We aim to involve the local community (in person or virtually) in as many experiences as possible with parents/grandparents etc. involved in tea parties, art exhibitions and documentary presentations.
Our curriculum is planned and sequenced so that new knowledge and skills build on what has been taught before and towards its clearly defined endpoints. Our aim is to provides the knowledge and skills that pupils need in order to take advantage of opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of later life.
We aim to equip pupils with the knowledge and cultural capital they need to succeed in life. Our understanding of ‘knowledge and cultural capital’ is derived from the following wording in the national curriculum: ‘It is the essential knowledge that pupils need to be educated citizens, introducing them to the best that has been thought and said and helping to engender an appreciation of human creativity and achievement.
Our curriculum is not “done” and will be evaluated for its impact through discussions with children, their families and teachers. We will do this termly to ensure it is rich, diverse and varied and provides stretch and challenge for all our young learners.
