Curriculum Overview

A passion for reading underpins our entire curriculum at Bude Primary Infants, inspiring and strengthening learning in every subject. We are scientists, musicians, artists, writers, historians and much more! For all of our topics we carefully select texts which will enhance vocabulary, language and engagement in learning. 
This year we adopted Cornerstones Maestro in KS1 to support our cross-curricular curriculum planning. We have the freedom to choose from a wide variety of projects as well as to adapt them or create our own. This ensures we are building a curriculum to meet our children's needs in our particular context and can follow their interests. Pupils learn more about the specific knowledge and skills needed to be a successful learner in each subject. 
EYFS have their own exciting topic questions which is led in part by the children's interests and fascinations. Please see more about this in the EYFS Curriculum section. 
We follow the New Cornwall Agreed Syllabus for RE which encourages children to explore their own and others' beliefs and opinions. We have an inclusive school which celebrates diversity and learns about the different cultures and religions in our own community and beyond. We learn about, and celebrate, different festivals and occasions throughout the year.  We also aim to celebrate all things British, including British values and also all things Cornish in this beautiful county we live in. 
We use SCARF, an interactive PSHE programme to support children's personal, social, health and emotional development ensuring that we are compliant with the new regulations from September 2020.
There are subject leaders in each school to ensure that teaching and learning in each area is age-appropriate. We plan to provide more opportunities for pupils and subject leaders to share work across the curriculum in both schools this year.
Please see below for the half termly topic planning for EYFS, Yr 1 and Yr 2.
