National Curriculum Foundation Subjects

History and Geography

We normally introduce the history and geography elements of the National Curriculum through topic work. These draw upon and extend children’s own knowledge and experience in and out of school by involving them in practical and interesting work. We help the children to develop and put into practice learning and recording skills involving the use of reference books, encyclopaedia, atlases, and historical and environmental material.

Design & Technology

Children will be taught to develop their design and technology capability through combining their design and practical skills with knowledge and understanding using materials, tools and equipment suitable to their needs.

Information Communication Technology

Children will be given the opportunity to extend their understanding of ICT throughout the school. They have experience of control, word processing, problem solving, communicating, finding information and data handling. We have an interactive white board and fixed computers in each classroom in addition to a bank of laptops which are available to all classes.

Physical Education

During their school life children will be taught a variety of physical activities such as games, gymnastic activities, athletics, tag rugby, football, dance and swimming. It is our aim to promote a healthy and positive attitude to physical education stretching each child to improve their skills whether as an individual or team member.

We have excellent indoor and outdoor facilities for a variety of activities. We are members of the Malton School Sports Partnership that provides a variety of sporting opportunities and competitions for all schools in the area. 

Art

Children are given the opportunity to express their artistic abilities using many different media. We place great emphasis on encouraging individual expression within a disciplined teaching approach.

Music

Every class takes part in singing and class music making, using a wide range of instruments. Music lessons on a range of instruments are also offered by North Yorkshire County Music Service and Music for Schools Foundation - fees available on request.

Religious Education

Under the terms of the Education Reform Act 1988, Religious Education must be taught to all pupils for an adequate and reasonable length of time. This is assumed to be one hour per week. We accept the fact that the religious traditions in this country are mainly Christian. Our teaching gives a prominent place to the study of Christianity. Our syllabus is non-denominational and in keeping with the syllabus requirements. All children will take part in daily collective worship.

Parents wishing to withdraw their children from Religious Education or collective worship (their right under section 9(3) of the E.R.A.) may make special arrangements with the Headteacher.

French

Children in Class 2 and Class 3 receive lessons in a modern foreign language.
