The Linking Project 2018-19
As part of our ongoing commitment to community cohesion through our PSHE and SMSC curriculum, the children of Class 3 are to participate in "The Linking Project". This highly successful initiative has developed over several years and, along with St Mary’s C.E. (A) Primary School, includes St Martin’s C of E Primary School, Fitton Hill and St Thomas C of E Primary School, Werneth.
This represents a valuable opportunity for the children of St Mary’s to socialise with and learn alongside children from the two other schools. During the events that form the framework of the project, our children will visit either St Martin’s or St Thomas - or stay in school and receive children from the other schools. This year’s chosen theme for the project is British Values and the children’s learning during the visits will be linked to this theme. Activities at St Mary’s will include a local walk to learn about the area and its history.
