Curriculum Subjects

English

English is taught as both a discreet and cross-curricular subject. Children are taught reading, writing, spelling, grammar, punctuation and phonics. The programme for English is delivered in a variety of lively and creative ways, including the use of ebooks, computing, drama and outdoor learning. Reading and writing activities include peer, buddy, group and whole school initiatives. We also have a wonderful library which the children regularly access.

The school uses a wide variety of reading schemes. Our main reading scheme is Oxford Reading Tree. We follow the Letters and Sounds phonics programme.      Overview of English          English at STM    Grammar Glossary for Parents

Handwriting

At St Thomas More, we take great pride of the equality in our handwriting. From the very first stages of Early Years, children are taught to use the cursive script. We strongly believe this promotes fluency, neatness and has strong links to accuracy of spelling.       Handwriting Script

 Maths

We value Mathematics as a way of gaining greater understanding of the world around us and seek to provide pupils with a rich and progressive curriculum. We support pupils to develop their ability to calculate, reason, problem solve, and to understand and appreciate patterns in numbers and space in their everyday lives, both in and out of school. We have adopted a Mastery approach towards our teaching - please click on the link for more information.  Mastery approach to teaching Maths at STM       Maths at STM

Children learn by seeing and doing. We encourage the use of games and activities to support their wider application of key mathematical concepts and skills.   Maths Activities for Home
