Curriculum Overview


At St. Mary’s, we are committed to a topic based approach to learning, making cross curricular links, for example, between history, art and English and working broadly around a theme such as: I’m an Explorer, Get Me Out of Here, World War 2 or Choccywoccydoodah.


Our curriculum is organised into themes which have been purposefully selected to ignite children’s interests and connect them to the world around them. These topics incorporate the knowledge and skills of each of the different curriculum areas while promoting the links within and across subjects. This ensures there is continuity, progression and challenges that encourage children’s development in all areas. Where particular subject knowledge does not connect purposefully to a topic it is taught discretely.


Teachers use Learning Journeys to map out the range and depth of learning over each half term. They capture key knowledge and vocabulary that will be covered in each topic and support children to learn and remember facts.


Each subject has its own curriculum document detailing progression over the years. Click on a subject area below:
