Curriculum & Homework

St Michael’s Creative Curriculum


The Reception class for the Foundation Stage at St Michael's. The curriculum taught is based on the Seven Areas of Learning and Development as outlined in the Early Years Framework: Personal, Social and Emotional Development, Physical Development, Communication and Language, Literacy, Maths, Understanding of the World and Expressive Arts and Designs.

In Year 1 to Year 6 the National Curriculum is delivered in a structured and meaningful way.  It is made clear to the children what their learning focus is and they have opportunities to reflect and improve their work through quality marking.  There are opportunities to learn in a cross curricular way and the staff endeavour to make the learning real to the children, for example by taking them on school trips to experience the learning in the real context.
