At Greenacres Primary School we believe learning should be exciting - our ultimate aim is to provide a highly enjoyable, creative curriculum which not only incorporates the National Curriculum but the needs, thoughts and ideas of every learner in our school.  Our creative curriculum ensures that all of our pupils are motivated, engaged and enthused about every learning experience, inspiring them to become lifelong learners.

At Greenacres our teaching and learning takes place within a topic based curriculum approach.  This means that wherever possible we group our subjects around a topic.  This topic-based structure has been effective in enthusing staff and pupils because of the many creative opportunities for links across subject areas.  It covers the National Curriculum points of study in a way that makes learning interesting and engaging for all of our pupils.  The design of the curriculum takes into account the needs of all pupils.  It values their diversity and allows them to make excellent progress within their learning.

The curriculum we have developed is based on an annual cycle where each curriculum year is divided into five distinct topics.  All topics are linked to a whole school theme creating a focal point for everyone’s learning.

Curriculum topics and outcomes include a transport museum produced by EYFS, Deadly 60 film premiere produced by Emerald and Magenta Classes, a Roman Exhibition created by Yellow and Indigo Class and a ‘Rough Guide To Greenwich’ published by Ivory and Turquoise Classes.
