Children are at the heart of what we do. Through an exciting, dynamic and experiential curriculum, we challenge children to know more, remember more and believe in themselves so they begin their life-long journey of learning, discovery and success.
We organise our learning into themes across the year, although some subjects are taught discretely.
Our QMPS Drivers
Q – At QMPS we will be confident to ask questions that matter. We will be inspired by our learning opportunities and encouraged to be inquisitive. We will become confident, critical thinkers.
M – At QMPS we will be motivated in our learning and driven in our desire to improve from our starting points. We will be willing to tackle challenges and are not discouraged by setbacks.
P – At QMPS we will be proactive in taking ownership of our own learning and be aware of the characteristics of a successful learner. We will make it happen!
S – At QMPS we will celebrate our achievements with pride. We are inspired by the successes and achievements of others and have a desire to do well in all areas of our school lives.
Launch/Hook into learning
Each theme begins with a launch. This is an engaging activity or experience that will inspire the children and leave them curious about their new learning. Their questions and reactions are recorded and returned to throughout the themed learning giving them a voice about their learning.
Classrooms and surrounding areas reflect the class theme, immersing them in a learning rich environment.
Each theme will involve a hands-on experience such as a visiting artist or speaker, a visit to a local place of significant relevance and interest, a workshop, adventurous outdoor activities or another area of outdoor learning.
Children reflect on, celebrate and share the termly learning they have been engaged in, they bring together all the work achieved over the past term for you to see at a theme celebration.
Curriculum Theme Overviews can be found on the class pages.
