At Lakeside our Thematic Curriculum is designed around our children to be broad and inclusive. We strive to ensure our curriculum is exciting and engaging. Our curriculum is knowledge and skills based which allows children to build their learning year after year. Our themes are carefully planned from the objectives each year group covers and is driven by high quality texts to support vocabulary development. 

As a Kite Academy school, we have identified eight disciplinary concepts that underpin our curriculum. By identifying a main concept (or concepts) for each subject in a unit of learning and a curious question, we are able to develop this curriculum coherence or ‘stickability’ of knowledge, enabling it to be committed to longer term memory. We use these concepts to shape the key knowledge in a subject, linking across subjects too (‘interdisciplinary’). Throughout our planning, the disciplinary concepts are colour coded for quick reference. This process can be summarised in the following diagram:
