Welcome to our school website.
What do we teach in our topics?

What do our children learn at Ravenswood Primary School?

The majority of the National Curriculum subjects are taught through themed units which can range from only a few weeks to an entire term.

We have found that when children learn using a thematic approach, strong links are made and greater, deeper learning can be achieved.


RE (statutory subject) is taught in standalone units across each of the key world religions. More information on this can be found on the RE curriculum page.


Below are the links to each of the units of work taught in the different year groups. Click on the name of the unit to download the plans. Each unit is mapped against the National Curriculum ensuring full coverage, depth and breath of learning. The IPC units form the basis of the learning in class. Each teacher will adapt them for their individual class to take into consideration personal interests and the skills and knowledge required for the children.
