Curriculum

At Hunslet Moor we believe that all children should be given the opportunity to achieve their full potential, taking into account the importance of meeting the needs of each individual child’s learning, and their social and emotional needs.

We provide a broad and balanced curriculum at Hunslet Moor with full coverage of all primary school subjects, in line with statutory requirements, as well as many opportunities for enrichment and challenge. We take a topic based approach to our curriculum, making links between subjects to enhance learning opportunities, but understand that some aspects of the curriculum and specific skills do need to be taught discretely.

At the heart of our curriculum is our school ethos, striving to unlock every child’s potential. We celebrate and value our diversity as a school and have planned opportunities throughout the year to recognise special times and key events.

In addition, we also provide a wide range of after school clubs, such as football, art, dance and homework; in order to provide children with the opportunities to continue to enrich their learning outside the school day.

Educational Visits and Enriching Experiences

Enriching experiences overview 2021-2022

Enriching experiences are fundamental to our school curriculum at Hunslet Moor, enabling children to learn through first hand experiences, both in school and on out-of-school visits. Our local community is at the heart of our school and we value the experiences the community can provide us with through visits from key people in the local area, local walks, historical experiences (e.g. Middleton Railway), visits to local places of worship and whole school community events.

Enriching experiences linked to learning challenge topics or specific subject areas are mapped out for each phase. All school visits are planned with approval from the EVC (Educational Visits Co-ordinator) and Headteacher and in line with the Evolve system.

When possible we involve parents and carers in these enriching experiences so as to further embed home school links across school. This could take the form of parents and carers supporting on out of school visits or being involved in events taking place in school.

Residential

One highlight in the school calendar, offered to our Year 4 and Year 6 pupils, is a residential visit to an outdoor pursuit centre. This year our Year 6 pupils will visit Ingleborough Hall and our Year 4 children will visit Lineham Farm in July. During this time, children take part in a range of team building activities such as assault courses and archery. They take risks and overcome challenges and as a result build confidence and self-belief in their own capabilities.

Sporting events

Physical development is an important part of our school curriculum and alongside children’s indoor and outdoor PE lessons, pupils have the opportunity to participate in sporting clubs such as football, multi-sports, gymnastics and Dazl Dance. At Hunslet Moor we recognise the importance of children having the chance to compete and perform in their specialist sports and ensure that opportunity is provided for inter-school competitions and performances at events such as special assemblies or whole school community events.

Sporting events, such as KS2 Sports Day, previously held at the John Charles Stadium has proved a huge success for motivating and inspiring children to ‘get involved’ in sport, encouraging each other and working together as a team. In KS1 and Early Years, children thoroughly enjoy participating in a range of races in school, to earn points for their team, enabling children to practise a range of skills and motivate each other to ‘have a go’.
The brilliant support from parents and carers at these sporting events and clubs, is incredibly valuable in building pupils’ self-esteem and confidence and encouraging pupils to be involved in physical activity.

Class assemblies

One key purpose of class assemblies at Hunslet Moor is to enable pupils’ to share their learning with their parents and carers and to develop their speaking skills and confidence performing in front of an audience. Currently class assemblies are being held virtually. We hope to be able to invite parents back into school soon to join our assemblies. 

Through class assemblies we aim to encourage and promote the opportunity for children to; learn about and promote greater understanding, tolerance and respect for each other’s cultures and beliefs and celebrate in each other’s successes and achievements through sharing work and ideas. Our shared assemblies develop a sense of belonging to a wider school community; develop our knowledge and understanding of the importance of religious stories and ideas found in different faiths and an appreciation and celebration of festivals that are represented in our diverse school community.
