Weston St Mary CE Primary School - Coming together as one

Our Curriculum

Our school curriculum has been designed to ensure that it covers all of the skills and knowledge which pupils are expected to learn in line with the National Curriculum and the Early Years Foundation Stage.  We have chosen to do this through a topic-driven curriculum, where pupils have the opportunity to study many subjects within the context of half-termly themes.  Below you can find the themes which each class will be studying over the academic year 2017-18.  You can also look at our Key Stage Curriculum overviews and ‘Connections’ planning for a more detailed account of what we will be doing.  

We also send half-termly class newsletters to update parents on what the children will be learning in the upcoming half term and the link for these can be found on our class pages.  In EYFS and KS1, we use Read Write Inc scheme to develop our phonics.
