The Wider Curriculum

In the section below, you will find a selection of resources to support learning in the wider curriculum.  These resources are designed to be accessible to all pupils.  

Computing
In our children’s future, being able to use applications and program computers will be essential skills. Consider now how you must program your thermostat, program your clock radio, and so on.  We must prepare our children for technologies that do not yet exist!

PSHCE
PSHCE gives children the knowledge and understanding to lead confident and independent lives.  The resources here give children the opportunity for moments of mindfulness.  

Science
Children are naturally curious.  Science at primary school nurtures this curiosity and allows children to ask questions and develop the skills they need to answer those questions. 

Design Technology
This 31-day calendar includes a LEGO prompt for each day of the week. It only takes a little prompting, and a child’s imagination can run wild with these creative ideas!

 
Art
Good artists can observe shapes in what they see and use this to draw accurately. Choose one step by step drawing to try each day and watch yourself improve. Alternatively, choose a drawing technique to try from the power point.

History
Studying history is important because it allows us to understand our past.  If we want to know how and why our world is the way it is today, we have to look to history for answers.
 

PE
With the schools closed and with us all spending more time at home, it's more important than ever that we keep moving and stay healthy and positive.
Exercise is an amazing tool to help us feel happier, more energised, and more optimistic.  

Geography
Use these geography home education resources to explore key human and physical geography topics with your children. Guide children on an exploration of the world!

Music
Singing and music play an important role in our culture.  You'll find music present in many aspects of our lives.  At home, music can become a natural part of our everyday experiences.

Forest School
If you are able to get out and about - either in a garden or an isolated forest area - this booklet provides lots of creative and active things to do with a stick!

 
Handwriting
Handwriting is an essential skill for both children and adults.  It activates the brain as it involves more complex motor and cognitive skills and contributes to reading fluency because it activates visual perception of letters. 

RE
In today’s increasingly multicultural society, learning about world religions is a vital part of children’s education, helping them develop an understanding and tolerance of other people’s faiths.
