Specialist lessons in ICT, music, PE and Mandarin are taught through a weekly programme of discreet sessions. They are integrated into the half termly themes of discovery, enhancing the Early Years curriculum.
Physical skills are developed through PE and through the students’ independent and collaborative interactions with the open environment and through music, dance, drama and role-play. Students’ engagement with class computers, iPads and a range of technologies in the computer suite, stimulate rich learning opportunities for mastering ICT skills. Creativity is fostered in music and drama and a value of languages and other cultures through the provision of Mandarin, where students learn through a variety of songs, stories and rhymes.
Specialist and class teachers work together in strong partnerships to provide opportunities for students’ success across the curriculum and where each child’s potential is understood and developed.
