St Thomas More have developed a creative curriculum which incorporates objectives from the different areas of the curriculum under a variety of topic headings. We use the Rainbow Continuum to assess which objectives each year group should be covering. The way in which the National Curriculum objectives are covered may change from year to year, based on current events and what the children have covered previously.
The attached grids are an example of the way in which children cover the objectives through topics. At the beginning of a topic, each teacher sends home a parent newsletter, explaining what will be covered and how. Each class also receives a menu of topic homework at this point. This contains tasks related to the topic which the children complete over the course of the topic. The coverage of the objectives is tracked carefully throughout the year to make sure all aspects and themes set in the national curriculum are covered by the end of each key stage.
