Curriculum


At Bradway we pride ourselves in our creative curriculum. We have found that pupils learn best when they have some influence over what they are learning so we provide opportunities for them to say what they would like to learn about in certain parts of the curriculum. Pupils have told us that they enjoy learning outside so we plan activities that make the most of our large grassed areas and woods. The outdoor classroom and woodland paths provide the potential for a wide range of exciting outdoor activities.

Although some subjects, like Maths, are mostly taught as a separate subject, many others are grouped together under the umbrella of a topic. So, for example, pupils will learn important literacy, geographical, historical and artistic skills through learning about the Stone Age in Year 3, dinosaurs in Year 2 and the Mayan Civilisation in Year 5. Visits and events will be organised to inspire the children and to give them a wider perspective. So for example in Years 3,4,5 and 6 all pupils get the opportunity to go on a residential visit where they stay for a night in a Youth Hostel or activity centre. In Year 3 they go to Ravenstor Youth Hostel where they take part in a variety of activities such as making candles and archery.

Topics are many and varied so that during the course of their school career pupils may be pirates, aliens, superheroes, dinosaurs, Romans, Second World War Evacuees or explorers. They will visit places as varied as Sheffield town centre, Whitby, Creswell Crags, Thornbridge and Eden Camp and will take part in many other exciting activities.

We do all we can to provide a curriculum which will inspire a love of learning amongst our pupils so that they will go on to become successful, independent ,self motivated learners in the future.
