This section of our website gives information on the curriculum our children will be studying over the academic year.
The curriculum overviews provide detailed information on what each year group will be studying each half term.
In addition to the information shared on our website, each half term parents and carers will receive a curriculum newsletter which will provide additional detail about the curriculum, special events, celebrations, visitors and trips.
We want our parents and carers to be involved in their child’s education and throughout the year we will provide lots of opportunities for them to join us in school.
How is our curriculum organised?
We believe children learn better when they are encouraged to use their imagination and apply their knowledge and skills learnt to engaging contexts.
Our curriculum is delivered through a mixture of termly Imaginative Learning Projects (ILPs) and Knowledge Rich Projects (KRPs) which provide a rich menu of exciting and motivating learning activities that make creative links between all aspects of our children’s learning.
At Stanley St. Peters we have chosen to use the Cornerstones Maestro Curriculum as the basis of our curriculum. This is becoming increasingly knowledge rich and the learning is mapped to the 2014 Primary National Curriculum to ensure comprehensive coverage of national expectations.
Throughout the year, our children will be immersed in good quality, engaging texts which link directly to the curriculum. In each year group, each term, an engaging text (fiction, non-fiction or poem) is chosen to match the ILP or KRP.
At the start of each term, a memorable experience is chosen; the aim of which is to engage and hook our children, making them want to learn and find out more! And, at the end of each term, we plan an end of topic celebration. We also set the children creative homework projects which are based on their topic each term. Parents and carers are invited in to school in order for the children to share their learning and to celebrate their efforts with these homework projects.
Where can I find out more information?

Please follow the link to the curriculum overview for each year group; this outlines the learning children will cover during the academic year. Throughout the year, it may be that certain topics or units are swapped within a year group but curriculum overviews will be updated accordingly.
Each half term, we will send home a curriculum newsletter which will provide additional detail about the curriculum, special events, celebrations, visitors and trips.
End of Year Expectations
Each year, a booklet that provides information for parents and carers on the end of year expectations for children in our school is sent home. The staff have identified these expectations as being the minimum requirements your child must meet in order to ensure continued progress throughout the following year.
All the objectives will be worked on throughout the year and will be the focus of direct teaching. Any extra support you can provide in helping your children to achieve these is greatly valued.
If you have any queries regarding the content of this booklet or want support in knowing how best to help your child, please talk to your child’s teacher.
