Curriculum Information

At Hockliffe Lower school we encourage children to develop a love of learning by providing an exciting thematic based curriculum which will inspire their interests and motivate them to achieve to the best of their ability.

The termly curriculum for each class is shared with parents and carers via a Class Curriculum News Sheet, a copy of which can be downloaded from the class pages on this website.

Topics studied include; Light and Dark, Minibeasts, The Rainforest, In the Garden, The Tudors, Children in World War Two, People from other lands, Houses and Homes, Toys and Games, Our School and Our Village.

The children made recycled toys and masks as part of a topic on Farm Africa
Here are class 3 children being evacuated as part of their topic on World War 2
Please look in the Gallery to see more photographs of our children enjoying their learning.


We believe that a child’s education is a partnership between parents and the school. To encourage this teachers set homework so that parents can share in their children’s learning. All children are asked to read at home with their family and each child has a Home School Link Diary where instructions and observations on progress can be shared. As the children get older homework will include learning spellings and practising mental maths skills.

In Class 2 and 3 children are given Learning Logs with cross curricular investigation tasks to complete at home, this gives the children the opportunity to explore a learning challenge in a style which is most effective and enjoyable for them.
