Class Topic Cycles

At Higham St. John's, we aim to make our curriculum bespoke to the needs of our children.  To view a copy of our Statement of Intent for our curriculum, please refer to the main curriculum page

A note on mixed-age classes

At Higham St. John's, we have mixed-age classes throughout the school.  As a result, the children may spend two years in any of our classes (Elm Class 1, Ash Class 2, Birch Class 3, Sycamore Class 4 or Oak Class 5). This means that we require a two-year topic cycle so that the children do not repeat any topics during their time in the same class. 

 

The history, geography (humanities) and science planning cycles on this page were brand new in Autumn 2 2019.  We continue to review the content as we progress through the cycles. We are very excited to be sharing these with our wider school community and are looking forward to teaching the children lots of fascinating new content.

Where relevant, we link class texts as part of our English curriculum to our history, geography and science topics.
