From September 2014, to complement the new National Curriculum, Merridale Primary introduced a new, thematic approach to teaching and learning. Central to this is our new "DISCOVER" curriculum—we are confident that this approach to teaching is the best way to ensure our pupils meet the challenges and demands of the new curriculum in an exciting and engaging way.
Discover topics allow children to cover many subject areas within a topic or thematic approach to learning. Generally speaking, this means that afternoons are no longer divided into separate lessons e.g. History, RE, Art but will be taught through Discover themes.
