At St Luke’s, we encourage children to learn confidently and to communicate what they have learnt.
We believe that children should have the benefit of a broad and balanced curriculum which extends and enriches their knowledge and understanding of the world we live in- so that they are able to make a valuable contribution as they grow. We are particularly keen to develop the ‘whole child’ and as such seek to further children’s interest in music and art through our collaboration with specialist partners such as ‘Thames Music’. We ensure children receive a rich curriculum by extending opportunities through theatre visits, visiting performers and musicians and school trips, including residential, to a range of places.
At St Luke’s, we firmly believe that children learn best when they are able to make connections in their learning and apply skills learnt. Each half-term we will be looking at a theme which will encompass many curriculum areas; the themes chosen are those which we feel will captivate the children’s interest and their enthusiasm for learning. We believe that children learn best when they are actively involved. “Learning by doing” makes the work more interesting, more meaningful and more likely to make sense and be remembered. This kind of learning helps children to think more clearly, to raise questions, try out ideas and to record their findings.
