!Frozen Lands! Our Exciting Spring Term Topic

Please take a moment to view details of our exciting new Spring term Topic; this is an example of the ethos behind our Creative Curriculum at St Loys.

Don't forget to have a look at our Galleries to see some of our Frozen Lands and Polar Day photos.

Frozen Lands

We believe learning is a journey  shaped by a string of amazing  adventures: to distant lands, other  periods of time, new places within  ourselves. We want our adventurers  to write without reluctance and to  see books as irresistible windows to  other worlds. Our desire is that their  love of journeying gives them a  ravenous appetite for learning. 

The sense of moving forwards on a journey mirrors our  commitment to the mastery curriculum by offering our learners  opportunities to build up their skills progressively and systematically. 

These opportunities are embedded within rich learning  contexts, presided over by stimulating literary texts. 

Our daily ‘Warm Up for Writing’ sessions introduce children to  the mechanisms of the writing process. The rest of the day  offers them opportunities to apply their writing skills across the curriculum. 

Some subjects are taught discretely, but when it is organic and  meaningful, every effort  is made to incorporate the learning  into the topic and text theme.

Our learners have opportunities to solve problems, apply  knowledge and take risks with their thinking.  We teach our children that risk‐taking and failing can be viewed  positively as learning opportunities.  Failing forwards is part of journeying.
