At Mabe School subjects are taught both discreetly and thematically as part of our creative approach to curriculum delivery.
We are currently developing our curriulum this year by ensuring we are getting a careful balance between rigour in the curriculum and the development of creativity. We are working on developing a broad and balanced curriculum that is enriched with visits from external providers, visits to places of educational interest and residentials.
Thematic work in school can come from a range of sources. These could include: periods of history, popular culture, books, personal development, health, food, the arts etc. These thematic approaches are underpinned by clear learning outcomes from a rigorous and progressive skills list that incorporates the National Curriculum 14, providing increasing levels of challenge as pupils move through the school. For our curriculum overviews for each class please see our class pages.
We are a growing school having recently become single form entry in EYFS and Key Stage 1. In Key Stage 2 the currciulum continues to be taught through a two year rolling programme from Years 3-6.

Curriculum in action at Mabe
Below you can see the vast array of activities that have taken place in our school since September 2018. Whilst only the tip of the iceberg, they give a flavour of the breadth of our curriuclum at Mabe. Please see class pages and the NEWS column on the left for further photographs and captions explaining what we have been up to!
Cornwall Virtual School Games!
At the end of June, we were proud to be part of the Cornwall Virtual School Games. This saw pupils at home and in school take part in a variety of sporting activities across the week, from athletics to volleyball, gymnastics to tennis. Despite the distance between us at this strange time we all pulled together as part of team Mabe! Check out the video here!
World Book Day 2020
We had a fantastic day dressed as our favourite book characters. Our whole day was centred around sharing and enjoying stories and developing that love of reading which is so important. They had opportunities to share their love of reading with younger and older children from other classes, taking part in story telling activities throughout the day. To bring a sense of community and family to our day, our grandparents reading event was a huge success with over 40 grandparents attending to read and share stories with their grandchildren. As a school we aim to instil a love of reading from an early age and continue to enhance this throughout their years at Mabe School. These events aim to show children the enjoyment that comes from reading as well as giving them memorable experiences that will last them a life time.
