Above is our whole school topic curriculum overview for 2018-19. This has been carefully planned to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum. 

We have recently redesigned our curriculum to ensure that children leave Livingstone not only achieving academically but also well rounded, knowledgeable, skilful learners who have aspiration to succeed in whatever path they choose to take.   We took the curriculum redesign as an opportunity to:

  • Develop the teaching of science
  • Teach historical periods in chronological order.
  • Have a range of topics driven by history, geography and science. 
  • Make better cross curricular links with English.
  • Link class readers and quality novels to topic themes.
  • Build in RE theme weeks
  • Redesign the computing curriculum to link with topics and develop progression.
  • Link creative subjects with humanities and science drivers.

Please note that in the Early Years Foundation Stage (Reception and Nursery), the topics will change in accordance with the childrens' interests but the planned topics allow for a framework to support children's own interests.  

For further information, please see the class pages which give more detail about what each class are learning.  Otherwise, please ask your child's class teacher.
