Junior Years Curriculum
Reception - Year 6
At Rostrevor, we recognise the early schooling years are vital in establishing the foundation skills and knowledge for young children in literacy, numeracy, creativity and comprehension, which they will draw on for the rest of their lives.
We know that individuals learn at different levels and believe it's important to foster this to allow students to reach their full potential. Staff work hard to develop differentiated units of work that accommodate for varied levels of entry into learning, including extension and enrichment options.
We are committed to enhancing and encouraging the inclusion of all students, particularly at a Junior level, where young men are still developing their confidence.
Our Junior curriculum focuses on key learning areas including English, Mathematics, HASS (Humanities and Social Science), Science and Technology, Health and Physical Education, the Arts/Music and the study of Italian. We also introduce Religious Education and share the core values that underpin this.
