Ladygrove Primary School

Whole School Curriculum

 

At Ladygrove we follow a creative curriculum approach which links the areas of the curriculum under an ILP - an Imaginative Learning Project. We use the 'Cornerstones Curriculum' to aid our planning and delivery of this. Due to the nature of our mixed age classes, we have a rolling programme of themes which allow full coverage of the National Curriculum and EYFS curriculum. We feel that our cross curricular approach benefits the children because it enables us to make links between a variety of subjects and provides a meaningful context for reading, writing and maths.

Each Cornerstones Unit develops learning through four distinct phases;
  
The Engage Stage: Children are given a ‘Memorable Experience’ which sparks the first interest in the topic.
  
The Develop Stage: Children’s knowledge and skills in particular areas of the curriculum are developed and extended.
  
The Innovate Stage: Children work creatively to produce work in the theme area.
  
The Express Stage: Children share what they have learnt and produced.
 
We operate a two year rolling programme for the Cornerstones Units in EYFS, KS1 and Lower KS2. For the mixed age classes in Upper KS2 and the mixed Year 4/5 class we operate a 3 year rolling programme.
