Palterton Primary School

Curriculum Overview

Throughout school we promote opportunities to develop the children's 'skills for life', this ranges from cooking to taking responsibility for the class pet. Much of what we do has PE as the core, which not only gives us chance to promote healthy lifestyles but also for children to  lead or take part in sporting activities and through competitive situations to learn to lose.

 We also encourage the children to be collaborative,  so from the smallest of gestures like tying up someone's shoe lace we promote and praise working together. It's incredible to see children climbing whilst trusting their friend to belay the rope and heart warming to see a Year 6 pupil teaching a Reception child to skip.
