At St. Mary’s Catholic Primary School, Personal, Social, Health, and Economic (PSHE) education is embedded within our
overarching curriculum that prepares our children for many different aspects of their lives.
Our overall goal is to help our children to become well-rounded individuals with strong character, who will eventually go out into the world of adults and be actively and positively involved in society. In order to do this, we are striving to create a conducive environment around the school and this year we have created our own specific Personal Development Curriculum that is entwined with our academic history curriculum.
Our history curriculum aims to provide engagement and enrichment and through this, we aim for all children to have equal opportunities to thrive together.

Cassatt Class- The Great Fire of London
Cassatt class have been learning about The Great Fire of London. We have compared London in the past to what London looks like today. We have watched video clips of the events of the fire and have sequenced the events onto a timeline. They worked in groups to sort the events onto the correct date.
Our trip to Astley Hall yesterday was fantastic. We learnt all about The Plague. We made our own posies after picking herbs from the garden, dressed up as the plague doctor, looked at different tools and instruments used to treat the plague and then even looked around to see what it would have been like in the days of the plague for rich and poor people. Take a look at our pictures below to see what a wonderful day we had.
This week we are continuing our Great Plague topic. As well as looking closely at the clothing worn by plague doctors, we have also looked at the rhyme Ring-a-ring o' roses and how this relates to the plague.
