Teachers use ‘Understanding Christianity’ and the ‘Diocesan Agreed Syllabus’ to support the teaching of RE. There are three main aspects to the planning and delivery of RE; ‘Make sense of the text’, ‘Understanding the Impact’ and ‘Making Connections’. Children are encouraged to consider how RE knowledge links to their lives and the wider world.
PE planning is based on Val Sabin units of work. During the year we provide children with experiences of working with external sports coaches to enhance the quality of our PE provision. In addition to the PE curriculum, children in all year groups have the opportunity to take part in internal ‘inter-house sports competitions and represent the school at various sporting events against other local schools.
Music is a significant part of daily life at Silverstone Primary and we inspire to develop a love of music. Music is prominent in all collective worship and enjoyed by all children. Furthermore music is used within lessons throughout the day to create an effective learning environment. We follow the Charanga music scheme of work and supplement this with units on classical music.
PSHE is based on the ‘SCARF’ scheme of work from Corum Education. Once a year the ‘Education Bus’ visits our school for a few days and the PSHE curriculum is enhanced through children covering sensitive topics with external professionals.
As with all subjects, Art and Design Technology follow the Nation Curriculum and where possible links are made with other subject areas such as history, geography and science. This helps to bring a purpose to the learning.
