KS1/2 curriculum maps
Our curriculum has been developed to create children who:
Are inspired learners.
Are good citizens.
Are independent thinkers.
Have enquiring minds.
Are great friends.
This is the philosophy of how we want to work and learn. As a whole school, we provide a creative curriculum based around the "Cornerstones Curriculum". This is an exciting and inspiring topic based curriculum.
What is the Cornerstones Curriculum?
The Cornerstones Curriculum is a creative and thematic approach to learning that is mapped to the 2014 Primary National Curriculum to ensure comprehensive coverage of national expectations. The curriculum is delivered through Imaginative Learning projects which provide a rich menu of exciting and motivating learning activities that make creative links between all aspects of our children’s learning. We believe children learn better when they are encouraged to use their imagination and apply their learning to engaging contexts. Our topic based curriculum provides a variety of learning challenges throughout the academic year that require children to solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding effectively across the curriculum.
Each topic begins with a memorable experience and is divided into four stages –
Each stage provides opportunities for children to learn and respond in a variety of ways, keeping projects flexible and able to follow children’s interests and needs.
