Our Curriculum
At Minworth JI School, our teaching is compliant with the National Curriculum and teachers write and plan topics to enthuse and engage pupils through our unique, thematic curriculum. Each year group has a specific theme that integrates and runs through other curriculum areas, which form the basis of termly or half-termly plans. This thematic approach allows our children plenty of opportunities to explore, discover and develop into deep, life-long learners. Our children are submerged in essential learning, making it meaningful whilst allowing and encouraging them to become masters of their own learning.
Information about the content of each theme of work is provided below.

At Minworth, in addition to their academic learning, we believe children should also be taught to develop socially, morally, culturally and spiritually. To ensure this happens, our Minworth Jigsaw values are taught, promoted and celebrated throughout our curriculum. Furthermore, we also promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance of different faiths and beliefs. Please see the link below to see how these British values are promoted at Minworth.

An additional value we promote at Minworth is 'taking pride in our heritage.' To promote this, in all topics taught, children learn about some of the key British historical figures, events and architecture that have helped shape Britain into what it is today. Please see the link below to see how this is promoted within our topics.

Maths at Minworth


As part of the Maths curriculum at Minworth, we follow the Bright Pi scheme. We believe that maths should provide exciting, real life learning opportunities and this is exactly what Bright Pi enables us to do, providing a Maths theme for each unit of work. Our pupils are motivated and enthused by each topic, and are able to apply the skills they learn in order to solve the problems, which are set in a real life context.
