We have created an exciting and challenging English Curriculum at Greenmount with a strong start for every child in early reading and phonics. This progresses to reading a range of authors and texts with independence, clarity and precision. We see every child as a reader and have created a love of books and stories in every classroom to hook your child on books and help them stick with them to instil a life- long love of reading. Inspirational texts are the basis for extending vocabulary and these provide a structure and basis for individual, independent writing.
Art, Music and Drama make up our Creative Arts journey through Greenmount Primary School. When children think creatively, they push boundaries, solve problems and express themselves in artistic ways. Not only do children enjoy working creatively, they also improve their confidence for a range of subjects and situations
Design Technology, Engineering, Computing and Science.
DTECS at Greenmount stands for Design and Technology, Engineering, Computing and Science. These subjects compliment each other when learning about the world. Through these subjects we encourage our children to ask questions, learn new skills and develop their understanding of how things work and why things happen.
The Humanities subjects at Greenmount include: History, Geography, RE and French. Through these subjects our children use their skills of enquiry and investigation to find out all about the world around them, meaning they can see the world through different eyes; the eyes of a Geographer or Historian, perhaps. It is the intention of the Humanities team to provide children, with a wealth of experiences that they can take with them at the end of their primary school journey and into later life, equipping them to be tolerant, informed citizens about the world they live in and its many aspects.
