The aim of the curriculum is to motivate and challenge our children to learn through research and experiential learning.  The curriculum is designed to be meaningful to our children within their own contexts and to bring learning to life.   The children write to a pre determined audience so that they are motivated to think carefully about the presentation of their learning.






The children's learning is carefully assessed through planned assessment opportunities.
