Here at TEA, we follow the English 2014 National Curriculum, adapted to meet the needs of our students. Our team strives to enhance the quality of teaching and learning, providing fun, interactive and learning environments for each and every child.
Literacy: At TEA, we follow the creative scheme of Talk for Writing as we strive for our Literacy lessons to be filled with enjoyment and engagement. The foundations of our literacy lessons are based on the principles of how people learn and our teachers are able to adapt the national curriculum content to suit the needs of our learners of any stage. The Talk for Writing approach enables children to read and write independently for a variety of audiences and purposes within different subjects.
Maths: At TEA, We use White Rose Maths as our main scheme of work to teach Mathematics. White Rose Maths is designed to follow the National Curriculum of England, and encompasses a Concrete, Pictorial and Abstract journey to ensure learners achieve Mastery in Mathematics. In Key Stage 2, pupils are encouraged to consider how mathematics can be used in a real life context, whereby through the implementation of a variety of resources and strategies, pupils are able to apply different mathematical concepts to solve problems.
Science: In Key Stage 2, we study a variety of Science topics which incorporate Biology, Chemistry and Physics focuses. We strive to make Science an interactive, engaging subject with a balance between practical experiments and written tasks. We encourage our pupils to think scientifically and make links to real life situations and the world around them. As part of our Science week each year, we hold a Science Fayre where children compete with each other and have careers talks from professionals who work in scientific fields.
The way we communicate, and access information have changed drastically and therefore ICT will be at the centre of a child’s learning. At TEA we strive for our ICT lessons to promote higher-order thinking skills, enhance subject learning, improve engagement and encourage collaboration. Children are fascinated with technology and it encourages and motivates them to learn in the classroom. It is important for children to engage with ICT so that they are prepared for an integrated society and that they use lCT as a tool for lifelong learning.
