Barrow Hedges Curriculum

At Barrow Hedges we used the topic titles and some of the materials from 'The Cornerstones Curriculum' when introducing the curriculum changes in 2014. Since then we have developed our creative and thematic approach to learning further; mapping key skills to the Primary National Curriculum to ensure comprehensive coverage of national expectations.

We believe children learn better when they are encouraged to use their imagination and apply their learning to engaging contexts. Our curriculum will provide lots of learning challenges throughout the academic year that will require children to solve problems, apply themselves creatively and express their knowledge and understanding effectively across the curriculum as well as a rich menu of exciting and motivating learning activities that make creative links between all aspects of our children’s learning. 

At Barrow Hedges the Subject Leaders have outlined the end of year expectations in their subjects. These essential skills are age related so that staff can track children’s progress and identify their individual learning needs.


Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

In Early Years Foundation Stage we will provide a context for the children’s learning. Each theme will include an ‘Express Event’ for parents to share the children’s learning.

We also learn about festivals and celebrations. Interest-led themes and topics that may enrich the Cornerstones units are listed below:
