Our curriculum

At Midsomer Norton Primary school we believe that every child deserves access to a wide and varied curriculum, helping them to develop skills and broaden their knowledge of the wider world.

We take a topic approach to our planning and in doing so, we endeavour to excite and motivate pupils, so that they are keen to learn and discover. 

What guides us?

We use National Curriculum guidance to develop our own custom built curriculum, running over a two-year cycle. This is reviewed and adapted annually, ensuring that every year is fresh and relevant to an ever changing world.

In Nursery and Reception, we follow the Foundation curriculum. For more information, click the Early Years pages.

From years 1 to 6 we take a thematic approach to learning. Maths is taught discretely and French is taught from year 3.

Pupils take pride in their curriculum books, which show a diverse range of skills and knowledge in different curriculum areas, including English, science, geography, history, and religious education.

Topics for 2015-16
