At Holy Trinity, we are pleased offer a rich and creative curriculum in collaboration with Cornerstones, to ensure that each child has a range of opportunities to develop, engage and achieve. This bespoke curriculum meets the National Curriculum for England and Wales and offers numerous activities, which deepen children’s understanding of the world around them.
Cornerstones aims to stimulate children through several phases of learning:
Engage - the children take part in first-hand experiences and begin to find out about their new theme through research and enquiry.
Develop – the children delve more deeply into the topic, developing new skills and understanding. They may also master new skills and use this phase to make links across the curriculum. Here, lines of inquiry or questioning are pursued.
Innovate – the children have the opportunity to demonstrate their newfound skills and knowledge, applying them to a range of problems and reflecting on their own needs.
Express – the children present, perform or demonstrate their learning and evaluate the progress they have made, drawing on links from across the curriculum.
Whilst our Cornerstones curriculum covers all areas of the curriculum, we still offer discrete subjects, including Maths and Religious Education.
For an overview of the topics planned for this year, including some of the proposed activities, please view our Curriculum Overview 2017 document below. Please note, specific activities may change throughout the course of the year.
