How do we do it here at Moorfield?

Here at Moorfield we use the Cornerstones schemes of work to meet our curriculum needs. Cornerstones provides us with a wide range of creative projects for each year group. These projects give comprehensive coverage of all National Curriculum guidelines but also provide fun and enriching lessons.

“Our four-stage pedagogy is built on academic research and years of practical teaching experience. We call it The Four Cornerstones.”

Cornerstones provides us with 4 stages of learning

– the 4 Cornerstones:

 

Engage

Hook learners in with a memorable experience.
Set the scene and provide the context for our learning.
Provoke curiosity using interesting starting points.
Encourage children to ask questions to provoke thought and interest.

Develop

Teach knowledge for depth of understanding.
Demonstrate new skills and allow time for consolidation.
Provide creative opportunities for making and doing.
Deliver reading, writing and talk across the curriculum.

Innovate

Provide imaginative scenarios where learning and outcome is child led and the adults are facilitators.
Provoke creative thinking.
Enable the children to provide previously learned skills.
Encourage enterprise and independent thinking.

Express

Encourage reflective talk by asking questions.
Provide opportunities for shared evaluation.
Celebrate success.
