As from 1st September 2014 the new National Curriculum for England comes into force.
This new curriculum contains the programmes of study and attainment targets for all subjects at all key stages.
As a school we are teaching these programmes of study using a thematic curriculum where it is relevant and appropriate.
For more information on what your child will be learning in school go to your child’s year group. Please remember every half term we send out a Learning Leaflet so that you know what your child will be learning and how you can support them at home.

In History at Matchborough First School Academy we aim to:
- Foster in children an interest in the past and to develop an understanding that enables them to enjoy all that history has to offer
- Develop in each child an awareness of and an interest in the past
- Develop an awareness of the cultural heritage of Britain
- Stimulate an awareness of the evidence of the past in the child’s own environment
- Provide a variety of experiences which will enable the child to develop historical skills in an enjoyable way
- Encourage children to develop a caring attitude towards their own environment
- Develop a sense of chronology.
- Help each child develop an understanding of historical concepts, such as time, change, evidence and cause and consequence.
Black History Month
During the month October the children will be learning about Black History. On Wednesday 18th October 2017 we are holding Black History Day where the whole school will be involved in different activities, all learning about various aspects of Black History. We are also welcoming some very special visitors from Gospel Touch, they will be working with the children from key stage 1 and 2 and performing to the whole school.
