Discovery’s Cornerstone Curriculum
This year at Discovery Primary School we are excited to introduce our new creative curriculum based around the principles of the Cornerstones Curriculum, a nationally recognised approach for delivering outstanding learning opportunities for children.
The Cornerstones Curriculum is a creative and thematic approach to learning that is mapped to the 2014 Primary National Curriculum allowing for comprehensive coverage of national expectations.
Our new curriculum will be delivered through Imaginative Learning Projects (ILPs), providing a variety of exciting and motivating learning opportunities that make creative links through all facets of the children’s learning. Children will progress through four stages of learning in each ILP – Engage, Develop, Innovate and Express
It is our belief that children learn better when they are encouraged to use their imagination and apply their learning through participating in engaging activities in a range of contexts. Our new curriculum will provide learning challenges throughout the academic year that will require the children to solve problems, applying themselves creatively and expressing their knowledge and understanding effectively across all aspects of the curriculum.
