Welcome to the Gordon Primary School Curriculum pages. We hope that the material you find in these pages will be informative, interesting and useful and would encourage you to come back and visit them regularly. We are always planning amazing learning opportunities for our children and love sharing them, not just with our community, but beyond it, too.
Our creative curriculum aims to ensure that all children receive a broad and balanced learning experience that inspires in them a commitment to life-long learning. We believe creativity is vital when enabling pupils to achieve high standards and that, by being creative, children learn to think for themselves, become adaptable and learn key skills for life. A creative curriculum can motivate and engage pupils and enable them to become independent and confident learners, so pupil leadership is an important part of our learning journeys.
Our curriculum places books and reading at its heart. Quality texts teach us about ourselves. They help us to pose big questions about who we are and about the world we live in. Literary works help learners to use their imagination, enhance their empathy for others and lead them to develop their own creativity. Quality texts provide rich language and an effective stimuli for expression and they can help learners to develop their understanding of other cultures and awareness of “difference” and can also help children to develop tolerance and understanding as they explore universal themes such as love, war, loss, friendship, loyalty, insecurity, family.
If you have any questions about our curriculum, please don't hesitate to speak with your child's class teacher.
