Teachers and Teaching Assistants
At The Ferns Primary Academy, our whole school curriculum branches from our use of quality texts and is designed to inspire and engage our children. The book, studied by each year group during each term, is the overarching theme for the topics in each subject area. All of our units of work are fully referenced to the 2014 Primary National Curriculum Framework and have a title that is in the form of a question in order to promote enquiry based learning.
What we do...
For the last 2 weeks we have been studying different aspects of SMSC through our quality texts. In the first week we looked at Roahl Dahl's book Danny the Champion of the World and discussed the moral dilemma tha Danny finds himself in. We wrote persuasive letters to Danny's Dad to persuade him to stop poaching. This week, we have looked a the amnesty international book, 'We Are All Born Free' and have discussed the concept of human rights and what rights we have as children in and out of school. We have been writing and performing our own poems to describe what rights we think we have.
