Obvious links between subjects and themes will still be made. Nutrition objectives to be covered across both Key Stages – children are timetabled to take part in a block of nutrition sessions with Mrs Burrell Computing replaces ICT with a larger focus on programming and the technical aspects of the subject Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural learning is the heart of our school’s new curriculum (Including ‘Family Trees’)
