The School at the Heart of the Community

Autumn 2021 - A new vision!

 

This Autumn term, we have reimagined our curriculum and are currently on an exciting journey to create the best curriculum for our children! Here at Captain Shaw's, all our family, from Nursery to Year 6, are fully involved in creating our topic visions, which are realised through real-life, purposeful projects or 'vehicles', allowing children (and staff) to experience the National Curriculum in new and exciting ways; linking subject matter together where it makes most sense and enriching children's experiences even further. Combine this with our Christian ethos, passion, wonder and high expectations and you have encapsulated Captain Shaw's CE Primary School.

 

Take a look at our Autumn 2021 planning below to see how our new curriculum is being realised...

 

Autumn Half Term 1

 

Celebrating me, our school and our community

_______________________

The Vision

 

  • ‘Me’ - facilitate children’s self-awareness / awareness and appreciation of their fellow peers, self-confidence, physical & mental health and raising personal pride and aspirations;
  • ‘School’ - rediscover the school and its vision and values. What do the children want their school to be? Really bring to the fore what makes our school great. The history and geography of the school and the legacy it has left. How would the children improve their school?
  • ‘Community’ - rediscover and celebrate where the school sits in the community. It’s importance to the people of Bootle and vice versa.

_______________________

The Vehicle

(memorable, real and purposeful outcome)

 

Putting Captain Shaw’s back on the map! - Relaunching the school website (the ‘window’ to the world). Children will help design and develop the website and use this as a vehicle to present their outcomes to the world! I am particularly looking forward to the staff picture profiles!
