At Great Tew Primary school, we follow an integrated approach to the curriculum, through our “Learning Challenge” Curriculum. This is an enquiry based approach, built around a series of questions, designed to engage the children and ‘hook’ them into their learning.  Learning is centred around a prime learning challenge or question, usually history, geography or science related, and the questions are designed to develop curiosity and incorporate challenge for all children. Children are involved in the planning and emphasis is placed on the development of skills through experiences which are motivating, engaging and relevant for all the children.

All of the learning will be linked around the Prime learning challenge, providing opportunities for children to apply their key skills in literacy, mathematics and computing where appropriate.

At Key Stages One and Two, children are taught in three mixed age classes, so our curriculum is planned out over a two year cycle.
