Welcome to the new KS2 unit at Cornfield School. We have been fortunate enough to expand this year and include students from the Primary age range too. This is an exciting addition for us, and one that is already working well!
In continuing to develop the good work of our KS3 and 4 groups, we aim to work in partnership with all staff, parents, governors and the local community to promote the development of our pupils. We are a caring unit promoting and encouraging co-operation, tolerance and self-discipline. We especially value creativity and imagination, and strive to give the children the best possible experiences.
Our curriculum is theme based and there is a strong emphasis on individual approaches to learning in all lessons. Topics studied include the Great American Wild West – including stories of Cowboys, Indians and the Pioneers, Extreme Earth – an exciting project focussing on world climates and the responses to many natural disasters, and The Aztecs – a fascinating look into the world of Aztec history and culture. In addition to the rich variety of blended topics, the students will also have daily reading, writing and mathematics lessons. They will take part in physical education and music too, including enjoying the outdoors environment with the wider key skills lessons.
As a unit we aim to provide a personal learning environment for all students where they will be constantly encouraged to meet new challenges and reach their full potential. We believe the broad curriculum with its emphasis on creativity, spiritual, physical and cultural development, as well as the acquisition of basic skills, to be suitable for all needs. Our focus is to help students to develop lifelong learning skills, independence and resilience, in a happy and secure environment.
We work collaboratively across the school and are committed to aiming high!
