Thorp is currently working on a new curriculum that is relevant, interesting and supports development of key skills. As part of this we are completing a whole school unit on WW2, and on Monday 25th November we will be starting another whole school unit, based on ‘Christmas’. Every class has an annual question to develop their thinking, and each unit has a class question that has at it’s centre a person, place, problem and through the unit they explore possibilities. All planning is for each year group is in their year group area of the website.
