The James Dixon Creative Curriculum immerses our children in real life learning opportunities which allow them to take risks, build confidence and have fun. These inclusive learning experiences will create memories and prepare our children to use and explore their talents to help shape a better future for the local and wider community.
Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC)
Here at James Dixon we embrace Learning Outside the Classroom is a cornerstone of our Creative Curriculum. It offers opportunities for exploration, experience and risk taking through child led learning, because we consider the world beyond the classroom, a truly wonderful place to learn.
Making sense of the wide and wondrous world around us creates, motivates and develops links within our learning and personal development in ways the classroom environment cannot and we, at James Dixon, believe every child has the right and privilege to experience this as an essential part of their learning and personal development.
The James Dixon Maths Curriculum aims to be an inclusive, purposeful and contextualised learning journey. Through the use of practical, visual and concrete resources the children progressively build on essential mathematical skills, including problem solving, fluency and reasoning. Well-structured lessons allow for clear differentiation ensuring pupils of all abilities can consistently and effectively access the Maths Curriculum.
