WOW THEMES have been identified and formulated into a 2 Year CURRICULUM MAP for each of the Early Years / Middles/ Uppers (See LONG TERM CURRICULUM MAP)
Previous curriculum coverage modules were assigned to wow themes – this has ensured subject based curriculum coverage.
From the curriculum coverage assigned to each WOW THEME, a subject DRIVER is identified. This subject driver will be the lead subject in the cross curricular theme
Other subjects from the noted curricular coverage (SUBSIDIARY SUBJECTS) support the driver subject in the cross curricular theme planning
A KEY SKILL (from the 3; –Problem solving & independent enquiry, Working with others, Reflecting on Learning) is attached to each WOW THEME (based on compatibility and coverage)
In addition the curriculum map indicates themes for RE, Literacy & Communication, Numeracy, PE and ICT which are often taught as stand alone lessons, with opportunities for generalisation and additional excitement within the WOW THEME
