At Meadowlane Primary School we offer a broad and balanced curriculum for our pupils from Nursery through to Year 6.
From Nursery to Year 2 (age 3 – 7) pupils follow the Foundation Phase curriculum. This covers 7 Areas of Learning:
Personal and social development, well being and cultural diversity
Language, literacy and communication skills
Welsh language development
Knowledge and understanding of the world
The Foundation Phase subjects are delivered in a very child centred, activity based approach.
From Year 3 to Year 6 (age 7 – 11) pupils follow the Key Stage 2 National Curriculum. This covers:
Art and Design
Design and Technology
Information and Communication Technology
From September 2015 we follow the Revised Areas of Learning and Programmes of Study which ensure that Literacy and Numeracy are at the forefront of each and every lesson.
Our Curriculum is differentiated to meet the needs of all our pupils, allowing individuals to develop at their own pace whilst still offering an appropriate level of challenge.
Children’s learning is based around a theme each term. We have regular ‘trip days’ where educational visits are used as a stimulus for the theme – the aim is to ‘WOW’ the children about their learning. We try to give the children exciting, hands on learning experiences wherever possible. At the end of a theme, the children share their learning with their parents.
We also offer a range of extra-curricular activities through our after school clubs, which give our pupils a range of additional learning opportunities.
We have a strong focus on using IT in all lessons and all classes have I pads for the children to access.
Staff constantly strive to provide a stimulating and challenging learning environment which can develop each child to their full potential. We ensure all children are given equal opportunities to access the curriculum regardless of gender, race, disability or social background.
