At South Wingfield Primary School we pride ourselves on the breadth and balance of the school curriculum for all groups of pupils. It is carefully planned to ensure it not only meets new national curriculum requirements in terms of the range and requirements of subjects taught, but provides our children with rich, meaningful and relevant learning experiences and to prepare them for life in modern Britain.
As part of our school vision for our children to become ‘responsible citizens’ we provide opportunities for children to learn about and experience:
During 2015/16, our classes had an additional focus on the Commonwealth and Queen Elizabeth 2nd. Each class chose a different part of the United Kingdom and researched key facts about its history and how it is part of, but different to the rest of the United Kingdom. They presented this information in an assembly to both parents and the rest of the school. In the Autumn Term these were as follows:
Class 1 & 2 - Scotland
Class 3 - England
Class 4 - Ireland
Class 5 - Wales
In the Spring Term, the children chose a Commonwealth country. First, they learnt what the term Commonwealth meant and now they are learning about their individual countries which are:-
Class 1 - New Zealand
Class 2 - Kenya
Class 3 - The History of the Commonwealth
Class 4 - Australia
Class 5 - Canada
In the Summer Term we explored a bit more about HM Queen Elizabeth 2nd, We celebrated her Golden Jubilee in school and each child received a commemorative coin. We also celebrated her 90th birthday on the 21st April 2016.
In 2017, each class will continue to have a termly focus on a part of the United Kingdom and a Commonwealth country. We will also be developing our links with schools in a different demographic to us by using The Big Classroom initiative.
As before, each class has chosen a part of the United Kingdom to study during the Autumn term, as well as a Commonwealth Country for the Spring Term. They are as follows:
Class 1 - Scotland and India
Class 2 - Ireland and
Class 3 - Wales and
Class 4 - England and
