To enable groupings to be fluid and flexible, the curriculum is carefully designed to ensure there's a thematic link between projects. For example, nursery's project 'why can't I have chocolate for breakfast?', reception's 'Why are carrots orange?' and Key Stage 1's 'Scrummdiddlyumptious' are all food based projects. Children are sensitively and carefully guided to the appropriate learning opportunties to ensure knowledge is cumulatively sequenced for each child.
