The Early Years Foundation stage
In the Foundation Stage the children learn through the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum where the focus is on learning through play. When staff judge children to be ready they begin working on the National Curriculum. At Stilton C of E Primary Academy we cover all aspects of the National Curriculum to enhance the learning experiences of the children. Through the Foundation Stage, aspects of skills and knowledge from the National Curriculum are introduced in order to provide progression for the children.
The National Curriculum
The National Curriculum sets out what children should know, understand and do in each year group in the following subjects: English, Maths, Science, Computing, Design and Technology, History, Geography, Music, Art and Design, Physical Education, Personal, Social and Health Education. We follow a local Cambridgeshire syllabus to teach Religious Education.
Our broader Curriculum.
Our Curriculum is more than the National Curriculum and is designed to develop subject knowledge skills and understanding and develop key social and learning skills. We plan topics and themes which will engage children and make learning meaningful. These themes draw together different parts of the National Curriculum.
We use Cornerstones Curriculum as a resource to support teaching across the curriculum.
