Curriculum

At Greenfields, the curriculum is the entire experience in our school.  This includes the formal programme of educational provision, extra curricular activities and those aspects of school life, which contribute to the development of the whole child and the whole school ethos.

To make learning as interesting and meaningful as possible for the children, our curriculum is enquiry based, featuring local people, local places and interesting local facts. You can see our enquiry thematic plan here:  GCPS Enquiry Curriculum Plan for 2016/17 & 2017/18.

At any particular time in the school day, children may be working as a whole class, in groups or individually according to need.  In this way all children will be challenged to work according to their age, stage and ability.

Throughout the school children follow programmes of study directly related to the National Curriculum.   Children in Pre-School, Nursery and Reception follow the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, children in Year 1 and Year 2 work on Key Stage 1 programmes of study, and children in Year 3, Year 4, Year 5 and Year 6 work on Key Stage 2 programmes of study. Children throughout school are taught French as our chosen modern foreign language.

All pupils are also given the opportunity to take part in our very own Forest School, which is run by fully trained members of school staff. At Forest School, children are encouraged to work co-operatively and learn to enjoy the outdoors, whatever the weather!
