In Early Years (Reception) we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.
In Key Stage 1 (Year One and Year Two) and Key Stage 2 (Years Three to Six) St Mary’s follows the new National Curriculum implemented in September 2014. More detailed information about the curriculum in each year-group can be found below to let parents and carers know what is being covered and how they can support learning at home.
At St. Mary's we have a theme-based creative curriculum where we make purposeful links across different curriculum areas in order to make learning meaningful for the children. For example, Year Four have a theme entitled 'Choccywoccydoodah' where they explore Roald Dahl's 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory', learn about the ancient Mayan civilisation and chocolate making and link this to their learning on Solids, Liquids and Gases in Science.
Parents and carers are also kept informed of changes to our curriculum via information sessions and curriculum evenings throughout the academic year.
If you have any questions about the curriculum we follow at St. Mary's, please look at the school prospectus or class pages first or contact the school who will direct you to the relevant subject leader who will be able to answer your query.
