Curriculum Long Term Plan
At Newlands our curriculum actively promotes both our school values and our teaching and learning pedagogy.
Our values are:
Responsibility, Empathy, Success, Perseverance, Enthusiasm, Creativity and Teamwork.
We organise our curriculum into topics that engage and motivate the children. Some topics last for half a term and some last for a full term. We send home topic letters so you can see what your child is learning at school and ideas for things you can do at home to support their learning.
