At Manor Hill we have written our Champion Curriculum to meet the needs of our vibrant and inquisitive pupils.
Our curriculum has been carefully designed in order that it is cohesive and progressive throughout the school.
Our programmes of study are rich in knowledge and skills, subject specific concepts are used to help children organise and prioritise information. Concepts support teachers to chart a pathway through learning, allowing children to know and remember more and make links more easily.
It is important to us that children are motivated to learn, we encourage this with experiential learning and are committed to providing enriching opportunities to bring learning to life.
Our days are carefully timetabled to ensure that learning is maximised, Phonics, Mathematics and English are taught each morning. Science and Foundation Subjects are discreetly taught and carefully blocked to allow for a sequence of lessons across a number of weeks. All subjects are carefully assessed using a range of assessment for learning techniques.
To ensure that pupils have the opportunity to revisit and build upon prior knowledge we employ the ‘Champion Learning’ pedagogy. We believe that the simple steps, outlined below, ensure Quality First Teaching for all.
