The National Curriculum
The National Curriculum (NC) provides both the content and framework for what we teach at LJS. Information on specific subjects can be found by clicking the links to the right and the NC can be found by clicking on the link above.
Through a broad and balanced curriculum our overarching aim is to:
- Ignite children's curiosity to learn
- Provide pupils with knowledge that builds on their previous learning, which helps them make sense of the world and prepares them for the next stage of their education
- Develop children's vocabulary so that it deepens their knowledge and understanding of what they read, hear and say
Our whole school curriculum map is available to download here:
The aims of individual subjects can be found in 'Subjects-on-a-page', these provide an overview of each curriculum subject.
All subjects have been designed so that children build on previous learning. Our Progression Maps, show the knowledge and skills that children learn while at LJS and can be viewed below.
Each year group has a curriculum overview, detailing what the children will learn over the year; they can be found in the 'Year group overviews' page.
