Garden Suburb Junior School

Curriculum

Through our teaching we aim to extend children’s knowledge, develop their skills and deepen their understanding. We are committed to stimulating all pupils and enabling them to do their best in all areas. Our broad curriculum builds on pupils’ strengths, interests and experiences and develops their confidence to learn and work independently and collaboratively, promoting enquiring minds and the enjoyment of learning. All the lessons are differentiated to meet the needs of a mixed ability class. Children may be taught as a whole class, as a group or individually. There are three classes in each year group.

We aim to equip children with the essential learning skills of literacy, numeracy, science and computing. Cross-curricular links are made in order to deliver a meaningful and creative curriculum. In line with the National Curriculum we teach geography, history, religious education, art, design technology, music, Spanish, physical education, dance and games. Music and Spanish are taught by specialist teachers. Swimming is available to Year 4 in the summer term. We have a music room and a computer suite. Children have access to an attractive well-resourced library.
