The Anson Big Curriculum (ABC) is an engaging and inspiring approach to the 2014 National Curriculum. Through a topic based approach the children are taught the key skills from the National Curriculum in a relevant and meaningful context to multicultural children living in London.
From investigating natural disasters and travelling in time machines to learning about the great books and exploring historical characters the children are immersed in geography, history, art, design and technology, music, computing and philosophy all underpinned by literacy skills and numeracy skills in a cross curricular approach.
The topics also take advantage of the city we live in with projects based at Wembley Stadium, St. Paul’s Cathedral and Cricklewood. We also use technology to explore the world, taking part in Mystery Skype sessions as well as exploring the world using the Internet alongside traditional materials.
The Big Curriculum is supported by our homework in Key Stage Two. The children learn more about the topic through a series of independent tasks and activities, that allow them to work on their own, with their friends and with their families. The results of the homework are outstanding and testament to the engagement the children have in the curriculum.
