Since September 2015 we have been using the Cornerstones Interactive Learning Projects scheme of work in order to build a group of well-rounded individuals who love to learn in exciting and dynamic ways.
Each half-term we engage our children with a new and exciting topic, develop their ideas and understanding, allow them to innovate with their new skills and express their ideas using all of their creativity.
Below is a summary of what each Year Group will be learning about during each half-term. You will find information about their topic, the books they will be reading, the phenomena they will be investigating - as well as information about what they will be studying in each of the foundation subjects during that time.
Science is a key focus in our school and we place a high priority on children's investigative skills and experiences. In the current year children have made blood, investigated the effect of different substances on tooth enamel and studied human development.
Ensuring children are exposed to high-quality literature is key to improving vocabulary and writing as well as developing a love for reading that will stay with children for life. We have invested heavily in classic literature which supplements and adds to the curriculum themes.
Home learning ties in with the curriculum in school- the details for this can be found in the 'children's' section of the website.
