Hillcroft believes in making learning meaningful  to our children and therefore the Curriculum is taught through interesting and child related topics.

Topic learning encourages most subjects of the Curriculum to be taught around a particular focus which engages children in their learning and encourages them to make links across subjects.

Some of the topics are taught termly and some are half termly. The topics chosen include the following subjects:

  • Literacy,
  • History,
  • Geography,
  • Art,
  • Design Technology,
  • Science (on occasions).

When a subject is not taught through the topic, they are taught discretely. These subjects include:

  • PE (physical Education)
  • RE (religious Education)
  • PHSE (Personal, Social, Emotional Education)
  • Science (on occasions)
