Class information

Here at St. Mary’s Church of England Primary School we would like to keep you up to date with what’s taking place in each of our classes. Below you can click on each of the different classes to go to their dedicated page. For each class you will find a curriculum map, class timetable and a brief overview of the areas of learning that will be covered by the class throughout the year.

 

 

Class newsletters

At the beginning of each half term a class newsletter will also be published and available to view from each class page. These newsletters will provide parents and children with more details about what will be taught, what class trips have been organised, whether any visitors are coming in, diary dates to be aware of and any other relevant information.
