Teaching for DEPTH of learning
Teaching for depth of learning
At Sharp Lane Primary school, our progressive curriculum has been carefully designed, organised and planned to ensure that our children are not merely covering the statutory content of the National Curriculum but achieving a depth of learning through the widening and deepening of essentials skills, understanding and concepts thus allowing these to be used across all areas of the curriculum. Within our curriculum, we build in many opportunities for repetition and practise to ensure that children are able to revisit previous learning, which allows them to gradually develop and build upon this to ensure for depth. Our intent is to ensure that our children develop the knowledge and understanding needed in what we must cover statutory from the National Curriculum as a starting point, but to also take their learning deeper to ensure it has ‘stickability’.
