St. Barnabas CE Primary School Curriculum
St. Barnabas delivers a theme based curriculum.  Each new topic has an exciting launch, a chance for children to explore the theme in depth and a final celebration of learning.
progression of skills has been carefully mapped from Reception to Year 6.
Each theme incorporates several subject areas.
Within each theme we promote a whole school Christian value every half term, which is rooted in theology.
The class pages show the current theme.


Forest School

What is Forest School?

Forest School is of great benefit to children because it provides unique opportunities and experiences to learn outside the classroom, where they can explore their natural surroundings. Forest School works with the ‘whole child’ building a child’s independence through achievable tasks, it builds upon their confidence and self-esteem when they complete tasks, gaining that great feeling of satisfaction. Children also begin to have respect for their natural world; finding out about plants, trees, birds and insects. They will have opportunities to build dens and shelters, play with ropes, and learn some knots & possibly have hot chocolate around the fire. But all in all have great fun!
