Curriculum Implementation

Barak Rosenshine’s 10 Principles of Effective Instruction underpin the implementation of our curriculum.

How we implement our curriculum:

  • Daily review - Starting lessons with a review of previous learning.
  • Present new material in small steps - Giving clear instructions and explanations during teaching. Presenting new concepts and ideas in small steps, so children can practise and master these.  
  • Ask questions - Checking children's understanding through high quality questioning throughout the lesson. 
  • Provide models - sharing high quality examples and models of work for children.  
  • Guide student practise - working together as a class with the teacher sharing and guiding children through practise.
  • Check for student understanding - Provide continual verbal feedback throughout lessons to ensure that learning opportunities are maximised for all children.  
  • Obtain a high success rate - through guided practise, effective questioning and independent practise of new skills and knowledge. 
  • Provide scaffolds for difficult tasks - Providing clear prompts for children to guide themselves through their learning.  
  • Independent practise - Children are given regular opportunities to work independently in order for them to apply and practise their new knowledge and skills. 
  • Review - Revisiting new learning regularly


The Golden thread of our curriculum is to: 

  • Develop a sense of community (past and present) 
  • Develop children’s global citizenship (future careers) 
  • Develop Cultural Capital 

The curriculum is cohesive and progressive, with knowledge and skills that are built upon year-on-year, but is also flexible enough to ensure that remains relevant and stimulating and reflects the context of King's Farm within the wider world. Through this curriculum, teachers inspire children to develop a love of learning.
