At Honilands we aim to provide a creative and balanced curriculum that meets the needs of all our children. The national curriculum objectives have been broken down into key skills and these are taught through exciting and engaging topics. If a subject does not fit into the topic (such as Maths, RE, PE, Spanish and occasionally Science) these will be taught separately. Our topics are Literacy led, ensuring that children are exposed to rich texts and are writing for purpose across all curriculum areas. Educational visits and visitors into school are an important aspect of our curriculum and are used to broaden the children's understanding of the topics we teach. We take care to try and enrich children’s learning through first hand and practical experiences.
Our Religious Education programme aims to develop children’s knowledge and understanding of all the major faiths, promoting tolerance and respect for each other as members of our multi-cultural community. Spanish is taught as our modern foreign language from Year 3 to Year 6. A specialist Spanish teacher takes the sessions each week.
Through our creative curriculum we aim to ensure that our children will:
Have a love of learning.
Be happy and have enjoyed their time at Honilands.
Have the basic academic skills to be successful at secondary school.
Take responsibility for their own learning.
Be willing to take risks and learn from their mistakes.

Show kindness and respect to others.

Have high self-esteem, pride and confidence.
