The Themes for each term this academic year (2017/18) are below. For more information, curriculum grids for each topic are uploaded onto the class pages at the start of each topic.
Dundale Primary School & Nursery - Whole School Curriculum Overview 2017/18
For more detailed information of the learning in each of these topics, please see the class pages by following the link below...
Our curriculum has been developed to offer all our children an exciting learning experience, based on an integrated cross curricular approach. Teachers plan five topics for the year so that children become fully immersed in their learning and develop life- long learning skills.
We always encourage our children to reflect on what they have learnt. Our children fully contribute towards planning their learning. Information technology is fully integrated into the classrooms to allow our children the power to decide how they want to learn.
Home School Partnership
We believe that learning at home forms the solid foundation on which to build school based learning. Children are expected to complete home learning every week and we encourage parents and carers to support their children with this.
Our children are given plenty of opportunities to go out on trips and to experience visitors at school. Pupils take regular part in sporting competitions across Tring and visit community events such as the annual Tringe comedy festival. Pupils may also take advantage of learning a musical instrument with a teacher from the Hertfordshire Music Service.
There are a variety of after-school clubs on offer.
Dundale Priamry School teaches phonics using the Letters and Sounds scheme details of which can be found here.
