At Hasmonean we are committed to meeting the requirements of the National Curriculum.
We strive to teach to the highest standard in English , Maths and Science. Reading is of fundamental importance to us at Hasmonean as is language and communication as well as phonics in our Early Years Department. Our Maths curriculum aims to give a solid understanding of key mathematical concepts as well as providing the pupils with the key skills to critically solve problems .
We have a broad and balanced curriculum that is taught in all our year groups from Nursery through to Year 6. Our curriculum has been carefully planed and sequenced from Nursery to Year 6 and consists of all the National Curriculum Subjects which are taught at Hasmonean as individual subjects. At Hasmonean we have definable threads running through all our subjects such as our Jewish heritage and travel and migration and we find links where appropriate between each subject.
We teach our Curriculum Subjects by developing the pupils knowledge, understanding and key skills which are built on each year which leads to greater understanding by our pupils. Our Pupil Voice which runs half termly encourages us to further develop and enhance our Curriculum by developing our different subjects according to the pupils needs and interests.
Our Curriculum is varied, fun and exciting. We are working on ensuring that our foundation subjects curriculum is accessible to all our different learners at Hasmonean, irrespective of disability and/or special needs. We aim to integrate our value and ethos into the Curriculum wherever possible and our guiding principle of “Torah Im Derech Eretz” with its overarching aim to develop the whole child underpins everything we aim to teach from our Curriculum.
We are working to ensure all our learners are resilient, challenged and enthused by our curriculum, as well as become independent in their learning style by the time they reach Year 6. We aim for every child to achieve the optimum progress and attainment from whatever their starting point.
Please arrange to speak to the Headteacher Hayley Gross if you have any further questions about the Curriculum.
