An example of one of our ‘Memorable Experiences’ to launch a new theme!

We believe that 'Curriculum' is everything that we 'do' and 'teach' in school.  It's the way we engage with each other; it's the way we engage the children in their learning; and it's the way we provide opportunities for all of our children.

In Key Stage One, we use the 'Cornerstones Curriculum' as a way to ensure we cover all the skills required by The National Curriculum. Children's learning is cross curricular and is based on  themes, which change every term.


We try to give our children opportunities and experiences that they may not otherwise have - these includes visitors from specialists and visits out to places the children may never have been before. Our themes, visitors and trips for this year so far are detailed below:
