The curriculum is designed and implemented in such a way that it builds on prior knowledge and skills and lays the foundation for future learning.
Each themed unit begins with an entry point which introduces the children to the learning that they will be engaging in. This is followed by a knowledge harvest and activities that explain main ideas that they will be learning about. Throughout the unit the children are given opportunities to research and record in a variety of ways including using technology. This is where the children develop, practice and deepen their knowledge, skills and understanding. Exit points conclude the unit and this is where the children are given opportunities to reflect on and celebrate their learning.
