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 immersed in the topic being studied and apply their knowledge and skills learnt to engaging contexts.
Our curriculum is delivered through projects 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 move over to the Cornerstones Maestro Curriculum as the basis of our curriculum. A phased introduction of this knowledge rich curriculum will avoid unplanned repetition of the same or similar projects themes or content for any individual child and will be fully implemented by 2021. 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 project being studied.
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.

Please follow the link to the curriculum overview for each year group; this outlines the learning children will cover during this academic year. As we now have mixed age classes, we will operate our curriculum on a cycle basis.
Please see the whole school overview below which details the projects to be studied in each cycle in each year group.
Please note that (in order to avoid repetition of content studied) the Y5 & 6 projects detailed on this whole school overview will not be fully implemented until September 2021.
