New Day Learning & Therapy Clinic uses an adapted UK National Curriculum to support our student’s education. Each student is provided with an Individualized Education Plan to structure their learning goals, so teachers, therapists and families can work together to consistent education.
National Curriculum Aims for the Core Subjects
The national curriculum for England has the following aims for the three core subjects at Key stage 1 and 2:
‘The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:
- become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
- reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
- can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and nonroutine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
Mathematics is an interconnected subject in which pupils need to be able to move fluently between representations of mathematical ideas. The programmes of study are, by necessity, organised into apparently distinct domains, but pupils should make rich connections across mathematical ideas to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems. They should also apply their mathematical knowledge to science and other subjects.’
‘The overarching aim for English in the national curriculum is to promote high standards of language and literacy by equipping pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written word, and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment.
The national curriculum for English aims to ensure that all pupils:
- read easily, fluently and with good understanding
- develop the habit of reading widely and often, for both pleasure and information
- acquire a wide vocabulary, an understanding of grammar and knowledge of linguistic conventions for reading, writing and spoken language
- appreciate our rich and varied literary heritage
- write clearly, accurately and coherently, adapting their language and style in and for a range of contexts, purposes and audiences
- use discussion in order to learn; they should be able to elaborate and explain clearly their understanding and ideas
- are competent in the arts of speaking and listening, making formal presentations, demonstrating to others and participating in debate.’
‘The national curriculum for science aims to ensure that all pupils:
- develop scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding through the specific disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics
- develop understanding of the nature, processes and methods of science through different types of science enquiries that help them to answer scientific questions about the world around them
- are equipped with the scientific knowledge required to understand the uses and implications of science, today and for the future.”
Foundation & Enrichment Subjects
Foundation subjects are just as important as the core subjects, so why not get inspired on how you can make lessons engaging for KS1 and KS2 classes.
What does Foundation Subject mean?
The National Curriculum states that foundation subjects are:
Art and Design, Citizenship, Computing and IT, Design and Technology, Languages, Geography, History, Music and P.E.
Enrichment subjects are provided to extend a student’s education beyond the typical subjects of students and are more centered at students interests.
Individual Education Plan (IEP)
Individual Education Plan implemented by our teachers and therapists help to achieve each students goals for growth.
An IEP is a map that lays out the program of special education instruction, supports, and services students need to make progress and thrive in school. There are many benefits to getting an IEP. The process begins with an evaluation that shows a student’s strengths and challenges. Families and schools use the results to create a program of services and supports tailored to meet the student’s needs.
