Castleford Park Junior Academy
We group the knowledge we teach under the headings below, so that we can support our pupils to make connections between their learning in different subjects, at different times in their school journey and help them understand why this learning is so important in the wider world:
Each area of study starts with an enquiry question that we continually refer to throughout our learning journey. This helps us make sense of each separate piece of knowledge that we learn about and helps us bring them all together into a coherent outcome:
