WOW THEMES have been identified and formulated into a 3 (or 4) Year CURRICULUM MAP for each of the Early Years / Middles/ Uppers/ HFA and ASD (See LONG TERM CURRICULUM MAP)
Curriculum coverage across the cycle is balanced using the areas of learning from the New primary curriculum. In each WOW THEME, a subject DRIVER is identified. This subject driver will be the lead subject in the cross curricular theme
Other subjects (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
The HFA curriculum focuses on "self organised learning environment" (SOLE) where questions are posed to the children , who work in teams to investigate and answer the questions and also develop their "working together skills"
