Early Years Foundation Stage
All areas of the curriculum are addressed through the seven Areas of Learning in the Foundation Stage. This is implemented by planning in a cross curricular approach, allowing children to either access them as a child initiated activity or an adult-led activity.
History and Geography Curriculum
At Ravensmead Geography and History is taught in a Cross Curricular approach. Pupils are taught different skills in the Geography and History Curriculum.
Before each new topic pupil voice is carried out in each class and the children share their thoughts and express ideas about what they would like to find out and learn. As part of the introduction to each new topic a WOW factor is used to encourage children with their learning. This may be a visitor, educational visit or a themed day. The first had experiences will then be given to the children throughout the topic. The topic will then be concluded with an exciting finale.
During the Academic year 2014-2015 Ravensmead will take advice from many areas and continue to develop its Assessment Policy. The assessment of pupils learning during the lesson continue to be vital.
