Long Term Plans 2019-2020
The Broadstone Hall School Long Term Planning 2020-21
Due to the closure of school to all pupils, (apart from the children of key workers in March 2020) and then the partial reopening of schools in June, many pupils will not have been in school for 5 months by September 2020. It is highly likely therefore, that the majority of pupils will have significant gaps in their learning due to this enforced absence.
At Broadstone Hall Primary School, we will be following the DfE advice to focus on plugging these gaps in learning as a priority for at least the first term of this academic year.
Substantial modification to the curriculum may be needed at the start of the year and teaching time will be prioritised to address significant gaps in pupils’ knowledge and skills, but there will be an expectation that we will return to the school’s normal curriculum content by summer term 2021
We have completed our long term plan update for 20-21 and they are based on the required content of the National Curriculum for England. Subject coordinators have checked them to ensure that there is full coverage of the national curriculum in each Key Stage.
Long term plans are constantly under review as teachers always adjust content after having taught a particular unit of work to improve it for the following year. It is important to note that not all subjects are taught in every term, but over a two year cycle all the National Curriculum content for a specific subject will be taught.
This year, the Y1/2 class will be following the Y1 long term plan, the Y3/4 class will be following the Y4 long term plan and the Y5/6 class will be following the Y6 long term plan. Children in each year group will be working to words the appropriate end of year expectations during lessons in these classes.
