Curriculum Areas

At Hangleton we believe in an exciting, topic-based approach to the curriculum. Staff work hard to create meaningful links between the different skills taught in each subject to create interesting and coherent topics that are taught across a half term. In addition we plan lots of stimulating learning experiences for the children to help inspire and motivate them. Of course, some subjects are taught separately where meaningful links cannot be made. For further information on the new curriculum please click here.

Topic ‘webs’ showing the topics and skills pupils will be studying are sent home each half term.


Below is a table that sets out the topics or themes covered in each year group during every term. Our themes are underpinned by the new national curriculum documents that guide our teaching, ensuring breadth of challenge and depth of learning.
