The Bowerhill Primary School classroom day runs from 8:50 a.m. until 3:15 p.m. However, the school curriculum covers everything that the child experiences during his or her time at school and includes activities beyond the classroom.
Our school offers a curriculum which makes use of links between some subjects in an exciting programme of topic work. For example, a central theme might have a History title but include Art, English, Design Technology and Computing activities.
Some subjects are taught separately because the knowledge for each year group is very specific. For example, children will have Maths and English lessons each day.
Some subjects are taught separately because the school employs specialist teachers for these areas. For example, children in Key Stage 2 have French, Music and Religious Education lessons taught by specialist teachers.
The curriculum also includes activities outside of classroom lessons. Our weekly assemblies follow the whole-school themes of our Personal Social Health Education lessons. The children will be involved in whole-school projects such as charity campaigns and may also take part in lessons provided as extra-curricular activities, such as after-school sports clubs.
