Discovery is a whole school approach to topic work which covers History, Geography, Art and Design Technology (and often ranges further afield!). It is a highly flexible and adaptable curriculum where we use the National Curriculum objectives as a jumping-off point and give staff the freedom to bring in their own creativity, passions and interests to their planning and to respond to the children's questions and lines of enquiry as the topic progresses.
The focus is upon developing their key skills in the different subjects to create quality and beautiful pieces of work and help children to honestly evaluate and improve what they're capable of.
By teaching the same topics across the school we encourage the children to share what they are learning with their friends and family who might be in other classes. It creates a unique situation where children from separate ends of the school can teach each other things because of the different angles or areas of a subject they've covered.
At the end of each topic, we have a learning fair where parents and carers can come in and see the work and learning that the children have been involved in.
