Curriculum Content and Progression

Our Curriculum outlines the intent for all subjects, how we will implement them, and how we will measure the impact. 

Our progression documentation has been planned to show clearly the journey of learning that a child makes from EYFS, through Key Stage 1 and into Key Stage 2.  This journey enables both teachers and children to understand the sequence of their learning and how what they are doing now builds on what they have already learnt, and will feed into what they will need to know.  Building vocabulary is a key part of learning and is built on throughout the child’s time at Trinity to equip them for future learning.

Sequences of lessons are planned carefully within each topic area using supporting schemes of work which ensure breadth and depth. By following the progression documents, subject leaders have built a sequence of lessons for each specific topic or area. Overviews and summaries shared with parents and carers termly to enable them to support the learning.

We measure the impact of learning through both formative and summative assessment. Each lesson includes revision of prior learning and vocabulary, and key vocabulary for the upcoming lesson.  Throughout, children are questioned informally through an activity or game to ensure the knowledge has been retained and remembered.  

Year group curriculum overviews show the areas and topics of focus for each term.
