Year 1 Curriculum / Long Term Plan

Curriculum Intent

At Birkby Infant and Nursery School we offer a broad academic curriculum that is underpinned by our four key aims.

  • Every child a reader: A reading-rich curriculum which enhances learning, supports the development of communication skills and results in the acquisition of knowledge which is retained, so that pupils know more, remember more and learn more.
  • Being good citizens: A curriculum which celebrates difference, develops an understanding of right and wrong, and which ensures pupils develop a strong moral compass.
  • A love for learning and being curious: A curriculum that is exciting and engaging, which challenges children to think, question, problem solve and reason and offers hands on experiences.   
  • Learning behaviours for success: A curriculum which nurtures the learning behaviours that will help children to succeed: ​Independence; Resilience; Motivation; Being reflective; Creativity.
