Schoolfield Elementary's Curriculum
Recognizing it is a fundamental skill needed for success, reading is the primary focus of each day in all grade levels with an average of 90 minutes of instruction each day. Reading instruction takes place across the curriculum in all subjects. Mathematics is also emphasized with at least one hour each day devoted to developing an understanding of the fundamental concepts.
Thematic units derived from science and social studies, based on the Virginia Standards of Learning and following the Danville Public Schools’ pacing guides provide the structure for the curriculum in kindergarten through third grade. Researchers who study how children and adults learn have found that providing the connections between subjects stimulates the brain to build new pathways for learning.
No longer structured solely around thematic units, the fourth and fifth grade curriculum lays the foundation for advanced study in the core subjects. By the time the fifth grade students leave for middle school, they are independent learners with excellent fundamental skills.
