Whole School Topic Overview

Tornedale Topics

Our topics have been chosen for excellence and enjoyment. They are based on which achieved greatest engagement of the children in previous years, matching their interests whilst meeting the requirements of the EYFS and National Curriculums. As we have mixed age classes we have chosen whole school topics on a two year cycle. With a small staff team, working on the same topic supports collaborative planning and ensures progression.
