Moorlands Primary School Curriculum

Language, communication and questioning lies at the heart of the Moorlands curriculum design. The curriculum is based upon questioning, a key question provides the stimulus for the different subjects. Philosophy for Children is an important aspect at Moorlands, pupils are encouraged to question, reason, justifying and challenge their thinking. These key skills underpin pupils' learning and is taught alongside the school's core values of RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY, PEACE, CO-OPERATION, EQUALITY AND PERSEVERANCE.

No Pens Day Wednesday 13th November 2019

On 13th November 2019, the school took part in No Pens Day. This involved putting down our pens and taking part in a day of speaking and listening activities. 

 

Comments from the pupils included:

'I enjoyed performing poetry. It really helped to get the rhythm and fluency in my reading!'

'Acting out poetry today was fun and I learned new vocabulary which I would like to use in my own writing.'
