Great Casterton's CE Primary School - A Normal Day!

The Long Term Planning has been divided up into 3 stages: Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2), Lower Key Stage 2 (Years 3 and 4) and Upper Key Stage 2 (Years 5 and 6). Each stage will have two cycles, so that the skills and knowledge contained within the curriculum can be covered over a two year cycle.
Combined with this curriculum, we have identified six key areas that the children are taught explicitly to achieve their potential in the future. These are: Ready to Learn, Resilience, Reflection, Respect, Responsibility and Resourcefulness. With technology moving so fast and the world having to deal with unpredictable events and forces of nature, our children need to be prepared and respond appropriately. These skills, whatever the pathway of our children, will start to prepare them for what is in their future. There are examples of the information we send out to parents about each of these 'Rs' below.
For further information regarding the curriculum please contact the school office (01780 762417) who will be happy to arrange an appointment with a relevant staff member.
