Baslow St Anne’s C of E Primary School

Creative Curriculum Plan


We have selected an exciting and stimulating set of topics, to cover History and Geography in the new National Curriculum, providing cross-curricular opportunities to branch into other areas. In all our lessons, we encourage children to develop as independent and active learners and we nurture enquiring minds.


English, Maths, Science, RE, PSHE, Art & DT, Computing, and Music are all taught separately, although links are made with our topics wherever appropriate. Enterprise is a further strand of our curriculum, which develops life skills in preparation for the future.


We recognise our responsiblity to prepare children for the complexities of life in modern Britain, and spiritual, moral, social and cultural development unpderpins all of our learning.

Key Stage One classes work on a two-yearly cycle, and Key Stage Two classes operate on a four-yearly cycle.

You can see our History and Geography topics below - for more information about what all of our classes are studying in every subject this term, click here.
