We are extremely excited to be able to introduce to you our overview of the new connected curriculum, which the whole school will be embracing this year. It has personally been designed by staff at our school, so links can be made between subjects wherever possible. This will allow learning to be seamless and connect together. Our afternoon sessions will be topic based, however links within English and Maths will also be made. Thorough planning of the themed approach has ensured 'The Primary National Curriculum objectives' are all incorporated. Click here to view

During each topic, children will have the opportunity for ‘Super Starts’, ‘Marvellous Middles’ and ‘Fabulous Finishes’. These include visitors, trips and a range of enrichment opportunities. Parental engagement is high on our priority, so we hope you will be able to join us for the many extraordinary events we have planned.

Each time a year group starts a new topic, you will receive a ‘Curriculum Newsletter for Parents’ outlining the learning that will be covered, so that you can support them to continue their learning at home. This will be sent home as a paper copy, emailed out and can always be found on our website. Please ask your child about their new lessons and topic.

We believe Alfred Street Junior School should be a wonderful place where children want to be and learning takes place both in and out of the classroom. Learning will be through a mixture of exploration, discovery, creativity and a variety of sensory experiences, which encourage learners to want to explore more in a journey of lifelong learning. Children will be encouraged to be curious and use thinking skills to innovate, be creative and problem solve. We aim to set learners up for life, with the knowledge and skills to be well-rounded individuals, mentally and physically healthy, with an appreciation for and a generosity towards people, the world and the universe around them.
