Curriculum

Here at Kingsway Community Primary School we provide a creative curriculum based around the  Cornerstones Curriculum, a nationally recognised approach for delivering outstanding learning opportunities for children.


What is the Cornerstones Curriculum?

 

The Cornerstones Curriculum is a creative and thematic approach to learning that is mapped to the 2014 Primary National Curriculum to ensure comprehensive coverage of national expectations. Our new curriculum will be delivered through Imaginative Learning Projects (ILPs) 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.

 

How it Works?

 

Children will progress through four stages of learning in each ILP – Engage, Develop, Innovate and Express. To find out more about these stages please click on the link through to Cornerstones website:

At Kingsway Community Primary School, we use the Read Write Inc (RWI) programme to get children off to a flying start with reading in Reception and in Key Stage 1.

 

RWI is a phonic based approach to teaching reading. It involves children learning to read sounds and how to blend them together to read words.

 

RWI is a successful reading programme that enables every child to become a confident and fluent reader at the first attempt. It aims to teach all children to read at a pace that they are comfortable with.

Maths at Kingsway

 

What does maths across the curriculum at Kingsway look like? Our aim is that our pupils will leave us as fluent, able mathematicians who love maths. We encourage children to ‘have a go’ and use their growth mindset to take on challenging maths problems.

 

A fluent knowledge of times tables is expected by Year 4 in preparation for the statutory times tables test. Pupils are taught to be mentally agile through daily mental arithmetic activities.

 

During lessons we question the children and focus on ‘Are you sure?’ ‘Can you prove it?’ How did you do that?’ – encouraging them to reason and explain. There is an emphasis on developing mathematical vocabulary, practical, hands on learning, independence and use of real life scenarios. Opportunities are given to use and consolidate maths skills through topic work. All of these skills are taught across the curriculum in each year.
