The National Curriculum sets out in detail what must be taught. It does not say
how it is to be taught. We believe children should be proficient in skills, that is
they should be able to read, write, spell and compute. We also believe that
children should be able to use those skills and be able to apply them to real
situations. This requires children to be confident in their skills and inventive in
their uses. We also think that children should enjoy this process.
The National Curriculum covers most subjects but at Exeter Road Primary, we
feel we add more. We like to make learning useful, practical and fun. We
perform plays and attend residential camps. We have class assemblies, make
books, displays and exhibitions. We try at all times to match this learning
experience to the needs of individual children to produce the best results.
