Dalton St Michael's CE Primary School

The Curriculum at Dalton St Michael's


The 'connected curriculum' at Dalton St Michael's C.E. has been designed to meet the needs of all pupils. It is delivered within a context that is meaningful and relevant to the children's everyday lives. Different styles of teaching and learning are used with practical 'first hand' experiences wherever possible. The curriculum is enhanced through inspirational themes which are both creative and enjoyable incorporating opportunities for out-of-school visits and regular visitors into school.

The 'connected curriculum' has been planned to ensure progression, enjoyment and provide opportunities for all children to excel. This has ensured that the basic skills are transferred into other areas of the curriculum. This is a cross-curricular approach which embeds basic English, Mathematics, Computing and Problem solving skills throughout all learning experiences in a more creative and enjoyable way.

Where appropriate we use the outdoor environment to enhance learning. The children are encouraged to use nature and their surroundings to help understand the environment and the world around us.
