Our topic based approach - Cross-curricular

At St. Augustine's, we are continually striving to provide our children with the best possible educational experiences on a daily basis.

 The most important underlying principle of a curriculum is to help children learn. We believe that a successful curriculum is brought to life by high quality teaching, inspirational learning activities and opportunities to listen and plan for the developing interests and motivations of children.

We deliver the content of the National Curriculum programmes of study through cross-curriculuar learning as much as possible.

 There are a wide variety of topics available for the teachers to choose from and this provides them with great flexibility in terms of delivering the curriculum. This means that teachers can choose topics which they feel are best suited to their particular class.

Children are informed if a lesson is cross-curricular at the beginning of the lesson and they write codes in the corner of their page of work to enable them to see the links and connections between various subjects and transfer their learning appropriately.

It is therefore very powerful in terms of embedding the children’s learning and deepening their knowledge, skills and understanding.
