The Curriculum at St. Giles’ C.E. Primary School

At St Giles CE Primary School, we endeavour to provide a broad and balanced, but flexible, curriculum which meets the needs of our children, and enables every child to fulfil their potential. We pride ourselves on our ability to tailor our curriculum to the interests and needs of our children and involve the children in their own learning as much as possible.

Across all areas of the curriculum, we try to give children an understanding not only of what they are learning, but why they are learning it. In this way, we can make children’s learning much more meaningful. We use a range of teaching styles to appeal to different children’s learning styles; these include demonstration, discussion, using visual stimulior models, ICT, research work and drama based activities. Sometimes, children will work individually, sometimes they will work in pairs and sometimes in groups, depending on the activity. Teaching in the school appeals very much to children’s learning styles, with a good mixture of visual, auditory and movement activities to help children learn as well as they possibly can.

Each classroom has a digital projector and a range of other I.C.T. equipment. The children also have access to a set of laptops and I Pads which, thanks to the wireless network, can be used anywhere in the school. We also subscribe to a variety of online support materials such as MyMaths, EBug Reading Club and Numbergym; please find direct links below.
