The Wonderful World Curriculum
At Stourfield Junior School, we aim to provide a stimulating, ambitious curriculum based around half-termly topics. These topics are led by a ‘driver subject’ which could be either;
Science, Geography, History, Art, DT, Computing or PE.
Each topic is launched with a ‘Wow Day’, where the children receive a taster of the topic content through fun, engaging activities. Some topics incorporate a trip or a drama workshop, and culminate in a ‘What I Now Know Day' to celebrate the children’s work and bring the topic to a conclusion.
As part of a fortnightly enrichment curriculum offer (Wider World Day), subjects such as; PSHE, RE, Spanish and Music are taught discretely by a specialist teacher.
Writing Across the Curriculum
We believe that children write best when they are inspired by the content and when they have real outcomes for their writing.
We therefore aim to write across the curriculum and incorporate English skills into our topic sessions and vice versa.
Trips and Residential Visits
At Stourfield Juniors, we aim to bring the children’s learning to life by taking the children on as many trips as we can. We place enormous value on enriching the children’s learning experiences through visits, which usually take place each half term.
Here are some examples:
Year 3 – Scaplen’s Court
Year 4 – Leeson House Residential visit 3 days
Year 5 – Marwell Zoo
Year 6 – Hengistbury Head and Bushcraft Residential Visit.
