Welcome to Ginkgo Class
The Class Teacher is supported by:
As we start a new academic year, we warmly welcome you to Ginkgo Class which is made up of Year 2 and Year 3 children.
Here in Ginkgo we want our children to be the best that they can possibly be. This is an exciting year ahead for all of us as we journey forward with our learning. We have a strong commitment to providing a broad, balanced creative curriculum full of inspirational topics in a vibrant setting.
CurriculumThe curriculum is all the planned activities which we organise in order to promote learning, personal growth and development. It includes not only the formal requirements of the National Curriculum, but also the curriculum guarantees we as a school provide to develop the independence and responsibility of all of our pupils. We ensure that all children have a broad, balanced and relevant education which provides continuity and progression and takes individual differences into account. We aim to teach our pupils how to grow into positive, responsible people, who can work and co-operate with others while developing knowledge and skills, so that they achieve their full potential.
An overview of the curriculum is attached below:
