At Ambler, we want our children to have a thirst for learning, to want to know answers to questions such as how? When? Where? Why? Our aim is to provide a stimulating creative curriculum that engages children’s interests and desire to learn.
We do this through introducing topics with ‘WOW days’ as a hook to learning. We make links with other curriculum areas such as texts we use in English and what’s happening in the world around us so they are immersed in their learning and develop a greater, deeper understanding of their topics. But there are so many more opportunities we offer to make learning come alive.
Trips linked to different curriculum areas and residential trips

Please take a look at your child’s curriculum booklet to find out more about the topics they are learning and how you can support them at home.
