Creative Learning Approach – New Curriculum 2014
All pupils begin their school lives in Class One, also referred to as the reception class. The dedicated staff in Class One work with each child to establish their abilities across the seven areas of learning when they enter the school and then plan every child’s learning within the supportive and nurturing environment which makes Mobberley Primary School so special.
In line with the requirements of the new Primary National Curriculum 2014 we offer a broad and balanced curriculum in the core and other foundation subjects as prescribed in the guidance. The core areas, English and Mathematics, are taught discretely every morning. In English there is a focus on reading, writing, spelling, speaking, listening, punctuation and grammar. We teach synthetic phonics, word patterns and spelling, and we set high standards for handwriting. We also study RE, computing, history, geography, science, languages, design & technology, art & design, music and PE, often using a thematic approach, educational field trips and a wide range of enrichment activities. RE is taught discretely in school using the agreed Cheshire Syllabus.
The school has chosen to use the ‘Cornerstones’ published materialsCreative Learning with Backbone to deliver the foundation subjects across the school, including EYFS. Sample materials can be viewed online on the following website www.cornerstoneseducation.co.uk.
