Here at St Ambrose Catholic Primary School, we provide a rich, rigorous and enjoyable curriculum based upon the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and National Curriculum frameworks. We follow a ‘topic based’ approach to our curriculum through our International Primary Curriculum. This means wherever possible we group our subjects around the topic.
The International Primary Curriculum is an enquiry based approach built around questioning, which helps ‘hook’ the children into their learning. It helps teachers make all learning exciting, active and meaningful for children. Learning with the IPC takes a global approach; helping children to connect their learning to where they are living now as well as looking at the learning from the perspective of other people in other countries.
Each year group has a new theme each term or half term. It starts with an entry point designed to hook the children into the learning experience. This may be based around different subject areas usually History and Geography. Through these themes, opportunities are built in for children to apply other key skills in Art, Design Technology, Computing and skills in learning together.
