CORNERSTONES CURRICULUM

 

At Wilshere-Dacre Junior Academy our afternoon topic teaching is based on the Cornerstones Curriculum  where learning is delivered through ‘investigative topics'.  We think it is important that children get the opportunity to explore learning in many different ways and our curriculum  ensures we are giving children significant opportunity to develop their key skills in writing and maths across a range of subjects. ‘Each topic investigation lasts for a half term. .

Each topic investigation covers a number of National Curriculum subjects with specific objectives for learning. As far as possible, writing work will be integrated so that the children are able to see the purpose for their writing. In addition, each classroom will hold an open event at the end of each term that parents and carers will be invited to in order to share in the children’s learning.

In order to keep you fully informed of what is happening, we will be sending out details of each topic investigation at the beginning of each year detailing the subject coverage for the year. This information will give general information about the subject area, a brief overview of what sort of things the children will be involved in and a summary of the key learning areas. .
