 At Ancaster we believe that an exciting and engaging curriculum should be at the centre of all of our learning. We strive to create the most creative and current learning topics that allow the children to access different experiences as well as make good progress in all areas. We have revised our curriculum to be compliant with the Primary Curriculum implemented in September 2014, ensuring that it continues to meet the needs and interests of all pupils, whilst retaining our unique Ancaster identity .

With this in mind, each term the whole school will undertake a school wide theme. Each class will then explore different elements of the theme so that our learning can be shared and discussed across the school. Each class publishes a topic map, which is used as a starting point for learning, however often children's curiosities and questions lead learning down unexpected and exciting paths!

Our Whole School Themes for 2017/18 are:

Autumn Term 1 and 2: Footprints in the Past

Spring Term 3 and 4: Journeys

Summer Term 5 and 6: We're Alive
