Sunnyside Primary Academy

Whole School Overview

We have adopted a thematic approach to our curriculum, throughout the academic year, each year group designs learning are key themes of history- discover, geography - explore, science - investigate and arts - create.  The theme is always relevant to the children and are designed to be exciting and engaging.  Whilst we use Cornerstones to support our planning, we ensure that it meets the year groups needs.  Whilst these subjects are the main subject, other subjects are also taught as part of this.  RE is taught following the Northamptonshire Scheme, for French we follow Catherine Cheater, we also access the White Rose planning hub for maths.  

During the planning we ensure that our drivers of emotional regulation, inquiry, character and jobs and careers are interweaved alongside our values.  This could be whole school assemblies, PSHE theme weeks, visitors and experiences.
