The Foundation Subjects
Information and Communication Technology is used in all areas of the curriculum to support children’s learning. Appropriate software is used to develop pupils technological communication skills; handling of information and use of web based resources. All children are provided with filtered and supervised internet access. The Market Deeping Community School ICT Policy outlines the importance that we place on ICT at our school.
Market Deeping Community School promote respect and tolerance. Children are introduced to four religious traditions in the course of their time at the school, and great care is taken to ensure that all beliefs are valued. The RE syllabus for each year is as follows:
- Year 3: Christianity/Religious Buildings
- Year 4: Hinduism/Buddhism
- Year 5: Islam/ Judaism
- Year 6:Sikhism
This is a Lincolnshire agreed syllabus for RE.
In Geography, pupils investigate a variety of people, places and environments during their time at Market Deeping Community School. Children find out how people affect the environment and how they are affected by it. They carry out geographical enquiry inside and outside the classroom. They use geographical skills and resources such as maps; atlases; aerial photographs and ICT to ask and answer geographical questions.
In History, pupils learn about significant people, events and places from both the recent and more distant past. They learn about change and continuity in Britain and in other parts of the world. They look at history in a variety of ways, for example from political, economic, technological and scientific, social, religious, cultural or aesthetic perspectives. They use different sources of information to help them investigate the past.
Art and Design Technology
Pupils develop their creativity and imagination through Art and Design Technology. At Market Deeping Community School, pupils are encouraged to use visual and tactile elements, materials and processes to communicate what they see, feel and think – the work they produce ranges from individual closed detailed observation to large collaborative wall friezes that can be viewed around the school.
All Market Deeping Community School pupils learn French in Key Stage 2. This enables our pupils to develop communication and literacy skills that lay the foundation for future language learning. As well as developing their linguistic competence, learning another language raises awareness of the multilingual and multicultural world we live in, and encourages tolerance and understanding of others.
