Curriculum

At Rudyard Kipling Primary we believe that children learn best when the curriculum is challenging, exciting and relevant to all. Our ‘deep learning’ approach to curriculum planning ensures a creative and cross-curricular approach to learning and teaching.   Wherever possible all areas of the curriculum are taught through topics which ensures that learning is meaningful and children have opportunities to practise skills in context. We ensure that every term each year group has a 'stunning start, marvellous middle and fantastic finish'. 

We aim to provide a broad, balanced and coherent curriculum, which covers National Curriculum requirements and promotes the intellectual, spiritual, moral, aesthetic, physical, social and emotional development of all pupils. 

There is a termly opportunity when parents are invited to attend ‘Topic Chats’ to find out about the learning planned for their child. Teachers also produce an information sheet (Topic overview), for parents that is available at that time.

The curriculum at Rudyard Kipling Primary School is based on the statutory National Curriculum framework for Key Stages 1 and 2. The framework can be accessed here.

In our Literacy sessions, we use an approach called 'Talk for Writing (TfW). TfW is powerful because it enables children to imitate the language they need for a particular topic orally before reading and analysing it and then writing their own version.  To find out more about Talk for Writing, click this link.

In our English lessons, we use the 'Talk for Writing' approach. We believe this is an excellent way to approach writing as it enables children to imitate the language they need for a particular topic orally before reading and analysing it and then writing their own version.  Our children, from Reception to Year 6, explore fiction and non-fiction through the process of imitating, innovating and finally inventing.
