The Children’s Learning

 

Years 1 to 6  follow the National Curriculum that was launched in September 2014. 

 Foundation Stage continue to follow the Foundation Stage Profile and Early Learning Goals. 

 

As we value parents’ engagement with the school we hope you find our Autumn Term Curriculum Meetings and the Curriculum Newsletters that we send home each short term useful. 

 We hope that they enable you to share in the excitement and breadth of the curriculum with your children. Copies for all year groups are available to view on the Year Group pages which can be found under the Children tab.

 

The link below details the 2014 National Curriculum and the overviews for each year group, to share how we plan to cover the curriculum over the Key Stages. Please be aware that there may be changes to these are we introduce new curriculum and support materials over this year. 

At Holyport, we feel the best way to deliver the National Curriculum objectives for many subjects is through a creative topic approach that engages and excites the children.  The school recently adopted the Cornerstones Curriculum with this aim in mind.

 

What is the Cornerstones Curriculum?

 

The Cornerstones Curriculum is a creative and thematic approach to learning that is mapped to the new 2014 Primary National Curriculum to ensure comprehensive coverage of national expectations. Our new curriculum will be delivered through Imaginative Learning Projects (ILPs) which will 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 new curriculum will provide lots of learning challenges throughout the academic year that will require children to solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding effectively across the curriculum.

Cornerstones also provide a rigorous essential skills framework that outlines the end of year expectations in all subjects. These essential skills are tied to activities and are age related so that staff can track children’s progress and identify their individual learning needs.

 

How it Works?

 

Children will progress through four stages of learning in each ILP – Engage, Develop, Innovate and Express. To find out more about these stages please click on the link through to Cornerstones website:
