Our curriculum

To reflect the demands of the 2014 National Curriculum, we plan using a cross-curricular approach to structuring learning. We hope the children will be engaged, challenged and excited by the range of curriculum themes.

English, maths, RE, PE, French and PSHE are taught discretely, with links being made to the curriculum theme if appropriate.

At St Mary’s CofE Primary School, we teach phonics to our reception and KS1 children through Active Learn Primary, which includes 'Phonics Bug' which is our main teaching tool and 'Bug Club' that is linked directly to our main reading scheme.

Each term, the class teacher will send a curriculum newsletter to parents, detailing each subject area being taught. Our long term plans for each year group are linked below.
