Kensington Primary School


Our themes provide context and excitement for our children and our teachers. They are developed using a combination of what the children are interested in and what the teachers are interested in. They are based around six broad 'drivers' across the school year: Investigators, Designers, Problem Solvers, Creators, Explorers, and Entrepreneurs.

We use themes to support our teaching of vocabulary. The repetition of key vocabulary throughout a theme in different contexts helps our children secure the technical language required.

Below you can find some examples of our overall planning for themes.
