Creative Curriculum

At Stower Provost we teach the latest National Curriculum, introduced in September 2014, which places higher expectations on standards in English, Numeracy and Computing. Our mornings are timetabled for reading, phonics, writing and maths activities but central to our approach and success in developing skills, knowledge and understanding and above all, excellence and enjoyment in learning, is our Creative Curriculum.

Our Creative Curriculum has proven to be very successful  and has resulted in enthusiastic and more independent learners. Each term or half term is devoted to a theme e.g. Carnivals, Pirates, Apocalypse Now (Ancient Greece), Around the World, Food Glorious Food – which will focus more strongly on particular subjects, but in planning the themes the staff will ensure a balance across the whole year and also take advantage of particular learning opportunities e.g. festivals or historic events and school trips. 

Children have the opportunity to direct the content of their learning from discussion sessions at the beginning of each theme. In the afternoon, when appropriate, we adopt a cross curricular approach to the foundation subjects – History, Geography, Computing, Technology, Music, Art and Design Technology. French is taught discretely in Key Stage 2 and we teach RE each week.

Each term we hold an open afternoon to celebrate our Creative Curriculum and to display the fantastic learning that has happened in school and supported by home learning. This Creative Curriculum Showcase, with refreshments provided by the PTFA, are always very well attended by family and friends.

In Reception, children join in the creative curriculum but follow the Early Years Foundation Scheme of learning.
