Here at Meadow Green, our curriculum focuses on developing the core skills of English and Maths as well as providing enriching learning experiences. In order to achieve our aims, we feel it is essential to have a well planned and structured curriculum based on the programmes of study of the National Curriculum. As our school has a one and a half form admission entry of up to 45 pupils, the school is structured with mixed age classes from Years 1 - 6. Consequently our foundation subjects currciulum runs on a two year cycle. Our extra curricular and enrichment activities include music lessons, sports clubs, theme days, visits to/from external groups and celebratory events.
The cycle of History and Geography topics is shown below. Please click on the relevant phase for more information about the Year group.
Key Stage 2 Year 5/6
Children attend swimming lessons whilst in the Year 3/4 phase in both years. Lessons take place at Cocks Moors Woods Leisure Centre, with each class attending for an intensive 10 day block over a fortnight. As a school we follow and work towards the KS2 Water Safety award with the aim that by the end of Year 4 almost all children will have achieved the required standard. Children currently go in two groups utilising our school minibus. Consequently we do not request parental contributions towards the cost of transporting the children to swimming.
At Meadow Green we use FFT Aspire monitoring and assessment system to record children's learning and which informs staff and parents of the specific skills and knowledge that the children need to develop in order to progress. Pupils individual progress against key learning objectives will be shared termly in order to ensure parents understand how their child is doing and areas where they can support the learning at home.
