At Liberty we use the Cornerstones curriculum. The school has ensured there is national curriculum coverage which is taught within a vibrant and meaningful curriculum for children. The school has been using the curriculum since September 2015. One of the strengths of the curriculum is the opportunities that pupils get to write accross the curriculum. All of this learning is recorded in a child's learning log. These are available to view at parent's evenings which take place twice a year or in fact when you are invited in for an EXPRESS point ( this is when parents can come in and take part in a learning experience). The curricuulm for each year group is shown in the first document , please bear in mind these are subject to small changes. Writing genres that pupils will be learning are highlighted in bold as well as core texts the pupils will be using. Please ask your child's class teacher if you require any more information.

Phonics is systematic teaching of the sounds conveyed by letters and groups of
letters, and includes teaching children to combine and blend these to read or
write words. It is of crucial importance, for the following reasons:
The majority of the information conveyed by letters concerns
Letters tell us more than any other source of information, even
when we have to interpret the information they provide.
We cannot read fluently until we read accurately, and this
depends on accurate use of the information conveyed letters.
Skilled, fluent readers do not guess.
Once we have learned what the letters are telling us in a word,
we can store it in our memory and retrieve it more quickly than
if we had to work it out.
