Children are taught the National Curriculum (September 2014) Programmes of Study, through years 1 - 6. Emphasis here is on basic skills development in English and Mathematics. Here at Woodlands learning is exciting and in a meaningful context for the children. Where ever possible learning is linked to become cross curricular and is taught through the topic/project approach. Where this is not achieveable subjects are taught discretely.

Throughout the year we have started to develop our two chosen curriculum drivers; Enterprise and Learning Outside the Classroom. These will be embedded in the academic year of 2016-17.
Within each of the four classes the teachers have developed creative curriculum projects which are cross curricular and of interest to our pupils at Woodlands.
