Our Creative Curriculum


At Shrewton we are passionate about delivering a engaging and creative curriculum that develops a range of skills and knowledge for every child. Each class has 6 topics each academic year which the focus for all of their learning and subjects. 


We work on a two year cycle to ensure children receive a rich and varied diet which extends and challenges their understanding and experiences.


Each topic starts with an engagement day to kick start their new topic and excite them about the learning ahead. This may be a dress up day, a school trip or a visitor into school.


Visit our school to find out even more about how we learn best!

In addition to our topic learning, we also have creative curriculum days where we learn about important things in our school, locally, nationally and globally. For example, in Term 1 we have had a British Values Day and Diversity Week - where we learn about significant figures in our history who influenced the world we live in. Next term we have Positive Behaviour Week and an Eco-Day where children can make recycled notepads.

Parents are always encouraged to get involved too. You can check our newsletters for any upcoming events that you are welcome to attend.
