Curriculum and Remote Learning
To find out more about how we teach the following subjects please follow the following weblinks.
We aim to ensure that our children develop into confident speakers, readers and writers, that they read widely and develop a real love for books that they take with them into adulthood. We have a strong emphasis on teaching the basic skills of reading, writing and maths to the highest standard so that our children can achieve their full potential.
Learning across school is supported and enriched by:
- A timetabled programme of lessons which are based on the National Curriculum;
- A dynamic and interactive environment that supports and challenges individual learning;
- WOW days;
- Themed and special focus weeks;
- Regular use of our school field and outdoor spaces;
- Regular out of school trips and workshops.
In addition, o
All our classes take part in a range of trips out of school throughout the year to extend their curriculum and cultural learning. These visits bring learning into context and provide all our children the opportunity to have enriching learning experiences. During their time at George Tomlinson, children have the opportunity to visit many of the museums, parks, galleries, libraries, places of worship and theatres in our local area as well as across wider London. All classes visit our local library and a London Art Gallery and/or cultural space each year and these include:
Reception - Tate Modern
Year 1 - National Gallery
Year 2 - William Morris / Little Angel Theatre
Year 3 - Tate Modern
Year 4 - Portrait Gallery
Year 5 - Tate Britain / Stratford East
Year 6 - Hayward / Barbican Galleries
