Subject Leader: Mrs L Shepherd
At St. Joseph’s, we use the International Primary Curriculum to support our teaching of foundation subjects. History, geography, technology and art and design are taught through IPC topics. Each topic presents learning in an engaging and meaningful way that helps to make links between subject areas.
The IPC has a clear process of learning and specific learning goals for every subject, including international mindedness and personal learning targets. Each topic opens with a knowledge harvest which allows teachers to understand any prior knowledge from the children in their class and an entry point to engage and inspire the children. At the end of each topic, an exit point provides children with an opportunity to celebrate their learning.
