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.
History and Geography priorities.

Today we became History Detectives!
We used clues to figure out when the Great Fire of London was and how it started.
The children worked in groups, with their adult and came up with some incredible ideas!
We even spoke about whether we thought it was accidental or on purpose - an interesting discussion in Holmes Class!
Ancient Greek Pottery Painting In Shelly Woods Class
Ancient Greek Pottery - Shelly Woods Class
Today we got all messy and created our very own Ancient Greek pottery. We researched some designs, created some of our own, practised different patterns and then used clay to create our own masterpieces! When they are dry, we will use black and orange (the colours the Ancient Greeks used) to paint our creations!
