Here at Coddington we provide a creative broad and balanced curriculum.
With the new National Curriculum having been introduced by the Government in (2014-15) we have been working hard to refresh our school approach and provision for pupils.
What is the basis of our curriculum?
Our Curriculum is a creative and thematic approach to learning that is mapped to the new 2014 Primary National Curriculum to ensure comprehensive coverage of national expectations. Our new curriculum will be delivered through Thematic Learning Projects, which will provide a rich menu of exciting and motivating learning activities that make creative links between all aspects of our children’s learning. We believe children learn better when they are encouraged to use their imagination and apply their learning to engaging contexts.
Our new curriculum will provide lots of learning challenges throughout the academic year that will require children to solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding effectively across the curriculum. Cornerstones also provide a rigorous essential skills framework that outlines the end of year expectations in all subjects. These essential skills are tied to activities and are age related so that staff can track children’s progress and identify their individual learning needs.
Paper copies of these documents are available free of charge via the school office.
KS1 Phonics - We use a combination of Letters and Sounds and Phonics Play to structure our initial phonics work.
