The 'Cornerstones Curriculum' that we use in school is a flexible and thematic curriculum that we believe supports the creative approach to learning that we embrace here at St John's. We aim to interest and motivate children through high quality teaching and imaginative, inspirational learning activities.
Cornerstones fully supports the new National Curriculum and the topics have all been recently updated for this purpose. It provides the children with a rich, diverse learning experience - linking together Foundation subjects (Art, D & T, Geography and History). We try to develop cross-curricular links where possible to heighten engagement and provide a context for learning. Our Big Writing is usually linked to topic work, and Science and ICT are planned to link to topic whenever possible throughout the year.
Cornerstones provides the opportunity to develop skills in other areas, including PSHE/Citizenship, speaking and listening and enterprise.
