Four Purposes – covered
All schools and settings must begin to adopt and embed the Four Purposes outlined in the government document, ‘A curriculum for Wales – a curriculum for life’. Cornerstones Curriculum Wales makes it easy. Download ‘Embedding the Four Purposes’, a coverage document that shows how our four-step pedagogy and other products naturally cover all aspects of the Welsh curriculum’s Four Purposes.View our coverage
Rich experiences for all
‘A curriculum for Wales – a curriculum for life’ highlights how important it is for rich experiences to be integral to a school’s curriculum. The Cornerstones Curriculum Wales already helps schools to plan for a wide range of Memorable Experiences. They are designed to ignite children’s interests and provide a starting point for developing the ‘Four Purposes’. Schools can download editable grids that list our curriculum’s Memorable Experiences for Nursery to Y6 from The Hub.View Pupil Offers for Y1 and Y5
Literacy built right in
Every project features a weekly literacy plan that is mapped to the revised Language, Literacy and Communication Skills for Foundation Phase and the English and Welsh programme of study for Key Stage 2. Literacy is integral to all subjects across our curriculum, which means schools are able to easily meet cross-curricular responsibilities.
Our curriculum is comprehensively up-to-date with the most recent changes from the Welsh Government. Plus, by using our online coverage checker, you can see your school’s entire curriculum coverage at the press of a button. It’s great for school and subject leaders, and for schools who need to provide curriculum coverage evidence for Estyn.
