Cultural Capital

At Talbot, children benefit from a flexible curriculum that builds on what they understand and know already. We believe that celebrating our cultural heritage as a community is critical, as is exposing the children to situations they may not have had previous experiences of. 

Gradually widening children’s experiences as they progress through school is an important step in providing rich and engaging learning across the curriculum. We plan carefully for children to have progressively richer experiences in nursery and beyond. These include trips to the local park, shops and visits to places of worship, museums, sports and music venues just to name a few. Some particular highlights include:

  • Understanding how history has shaped our future, e.g. Year 2 Arthur France and the Leeds Carnival and theme days across the school.
  • Ensuring our curriculum reflects our community, e.g. Islamic Civilisations, Indus Valley and local studies in History and Geography.
  • Celebrating the rich diversity and faiths in the school, e.g. Faith assemblies, Languages day
  • Educational visits for all, linked to our locality and beyond, e.g. bookshops, Herd Farm, Low Mill.
  • Supporting our local community, e.g. visits to local residents, Santa-a-gram and choirs.
  • Growing our own vegetables.
  • Learning more about First Aid and how we can help others.

There is so much more to see, say and share - see the year group and long term plan pages for more.
