Holmgate Primary School and Nursery

Curriculum Overview

Our curriculum runs over a two-year cycle. Each term we have a new project or end goal through which we teach a number of linked curriculum areas, which always have Religious Education and Personal, Social and Health Education at their core: Autumn term is our Explore project, which is Geography-based, Spring term is our Discover project, which is history-based and Summer term is our Create project, which is Arts-based. Other curriculum areas are linked in to this project to allow us to cover the requirements of the National Curriculum. As part of each project children are given the opportunity to explore important issues and problems whilst considering how they can make a difference to both their community and the wider world.
For more details on what the children are learning in each class, please see the individual class pages.
