Woodlands Primary

Curriculum intent

Here are our Statements of Intent for our 'Million Dreams' Curriculum.

If you have any queries about the curriculum at Woodlands Primary School, please contact Mrs Formoso via the school office.

Successful Learners

It is our intent that the Successful Learners and Growth Mindset curriculum will allow children to understand the malleability of intelligence and that they can improve through hard work.  They will understand the emotions and feelings, that come with setbacks, experienced when they face challenge and understand that mistakes help them to learn.


It is our intent that teaching English will provide children with a vehicle for expression and empathy. It will also allow children to improve communication skills and enable them to understand the spoken language gaining knowledge across the whole primary curriculum.


It is our intent that the maths curriculum will ensure that pupils become increasingly fluent with whole numbers and the four operations, including number facts and the concept of place value to enable individuals to use number in everyday situations


It is our intent  for the science curriculum to develop  the children's curiosity about the world, enjoyment of scientific activity and understanding of how natural phenomena can be explained.


It is our intent that the Geography curriculum will ensure children gain the ability to research and use field work skills to gain (geographical) knowledge.


It is our intent that the History curriculum will enable children to understand the chronology of important historic events and the impact had, and still have, on our lives today.


It is our intent for the PE Curriculum to deliver high quality lessons that inspire our pupils to participate and succeed in sport.  We want our pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health, wellbeing and fitness, and promotes a lifelong healthy lifestyle


It is our intent for the Religious Education element of our school curriculum to inspire, engage and encourage pupils to ask challenging questions and to explore various answers to these questions rooted in different religious beliefs and world views. We want children to develop curiosity about the world we live in by equipping them with the knowledge and skills to explore different religious beliefs, values and traditions. We aim to prepare pupils for the diverse landscape of modern Britain and help them grow into adults welcoming those of all faiths and none. 


It is our intent that the PSHE curriculum will develop children’s confidence and good self-esteem to enable individuals to make the most of their abilities, to recognise their own worth, and to develop positive and fulfilling relationships with other members of the school and the wider community.


It is our intent that the Art curriculum develops the ability to use a variety of materials and styles to respond to existing artistic pieces and to have skills and creativity to create their own.


It is our intent that the DT curriculum develops  the ability to follow steps to create a refined outcome/product that meets the needs of  a given set of requirements.


It is our intent that the Music curriculum will enable learning through the medium of sound. Music is at the heart of spiritual, moral, social and cultural learning. Pupils will be able to develop confidence, resilience and empathy through performing and through the creativity of sound.


It is our intent for Computing to equip pupils to use computational thinking and creativity to understand and change the world. We want pupils to become digitally literate – able to use, and express themselves and develop their ideas through, information and communication technology – at a level suitable for the future workplace and as active participants in a digital world.
