Article 29: Children’s education should develop each child’s personality, talents and abilities to the fullest. It should encourage children to respect others, human rights and their own and other cultures. It should also help them learn to live peacefully, protect the environment and respect other people.
Our Curriculum Policy details our intent behind our curriculum, how we implement it and our desired impact. At RCSAT, the school curriculum consists of all those activities designed or encouraged within its organisational framework to provide the intellectual, emotional, personal, social, spiritual and physical development of all its pupils. It includes not only the subject specific curriculum but also the ‘informal’ programme of enrichment and extra-curricular activities.
The curriculum at RCSAT, is firmly rooted in and stems directly from our Vision, Mission and Core Values;
Our Vision – ‘Let your Light shine’ Matthew v5:16
Our Mission – ‘A Caring Christian Family Where We Grow Together’
Our Core Values –
WE aim to create an enjoyable, inclusive, safe and nurturing environment that allows all children to develop spiritually, morally and socially.
– every child is a child of God, made to contribute to our world.
WE aim to create an inspiring environment, which encourages enthusiasm for lifelong learning and establishes an expectation of high standards.
– knowing the way, showing the way and going the way.
WE aim to encourage caring, sensitive and inclusive attitudes where individuals feel secure, valued and respected by others.
– like Jesus showed us through his teachings
WE aim to provide a broad and connected curriculum which challenges and develops the potential of each child.
– as Jesus needed his disciples to support and guide, so we look to others with more knowledge
WE aim to develop a positive relationship between home, school and our wider community
- as a family – as brothers and sisters
At Bunbury Aldersey CE Primary School all children in KS2 have the opportunity to learn French and Spanish. Through our lessons we aim to instill in the children a confidence and enthusiasm for language learning which will provide them with key skills to continue their learnig in KS3 & 4 and beyond. We use authentic activities and resources (stories, songs, games etc) which use all four key skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening.
Children are encouraged to see links between knowledge of their own language and how that may help them learn another. The basics of French and Spanish grammar (gender, agreements. verbs etc ) are introduced gradually and are reinforced through repetition and practice using different topic areas. The planning guide attached is used as an ideal guide for topics to be covered over each year group however, work is often altered to follow the needs and progress of each class.
Children at Bunbury will have the opportunity to study French within years 3 and 4 and Spanish within years 5 and 6.
