CLICK – Creative Learning Inspires Clever Kids

Here at Rawthorpe St James we are committed to providing a creative, skills based curriculum which is personalised to meet the needs of our pupils. We believe that our curriculum enables pupils to have the requisite skills to be successful, resilient and motivated learners in readiness for their next stage of education.

Our CLICK topics have been planned by staff to engage and challenge pupils by rooting the skills they need in exciting contexts, such as ‘To Infinity and Beyond!’ our Year 1 space topic, or ‘Where in the World Would You Go?’ Year 2’s Around the World in 80 Days topic. The curriculum is planned to recognise and meet the individual learning needs of each pupil and is differentiated to ensure learning opportunities are both stimulating and ability appropriate. We put great emphasis on providing first-hand experiences that challenge, stimulate and provoke pupils thinking. As part of this each topic begins with an ‘Inspiration Day’ which kicks starts the pupil’s curiosity by providing them with an exciting experience. For example our Year 1 pupils had an exciting visit from some amazing animals to launch their Animal Antics topic.

Many of our units of work continue to have more mini inspiration days throughout the term. In every year group the CLICK topics bring together all the key aspects of the curriculum; science, art, DT, history, geography, music, computing in a fun and creative way. Lots of opportunities also arise for cross curricular links to be made allowing the pupils to carry out pieces of writing or mathematical investigations based around their current topic. These ever-evolving units are continually adapted and improved through careful evaluation and feedback. We also make sure our curriculum meets the requirements, content and challenge of the primary National Curriculum. In addition to the skills we believe the pupils in our community need.
