At Nessfield Primary School, we believe that children need to be inspired and motivated in order to learn and achieve. To help us implement the changes whilst still keeping the ‘WOW’ factor, from September 2014 we have chosen to adopt the Cornerstones Curriculum for Key Stage 1 and 2.
The philosophy of cornerstones combines both national and international research and is blended with the best approaches to successful, fun and innovative teaching and learning. It is taught through projects which enthuse and encourage the children to become independent learners.
Cornerstones is a creative curriculum based on ‘Imaginative Learning Projects’. Each project is split into four cornerstones of learning which brings the curriculum to life. Each stage has its own unique characteristics, which help children learn and remain motivated throughout each project.
We follow the Letters and Sounds phonics teaching programme which can be viewed at:
