The Curriculum at Shelford
At Great and Little Shelford Primary School we believe that learning is a lifelong process, which extends beyond the school gates. We believe primary education should be an exciting adventure that is an enjoyable and rewarding experience for everyone.
Skills are taught within half termly or termly ‘projects’, which provide a stimulating context for learning. Projects provide excellent opportunities for using creativity and imagination; they give children the chance to really ‘get their teeth into’ their learning and engage with subjects on a much deeper level. We aim to enrich projects as fully as possible by taking classes on a wide variety of educational visits linked to their classroom learning.
Shelford School staff have worked creatively to compile an excellent curriculum for every year group. We believe that the children’s journey through each year group in the school will be a rich and inspiring one and are committed to ensuring that effective teaching and effective learning are present within every classroom.
Please see our individual year group curriculum pages for how our curriculum is put into practice within our classrooms.
