Welcome to Topic at Sacred Heart!
Topic is made up of four subjects:
Geography, History, Art and Design and Technology.
Topic drives our thematic curriculum at Sacred Heart. We believe that fostering children's creativity and engagement through engaging sessions in and inspired through Topic has a huge impact on their ability to succeed academically, socially, emotionally and culturally. This strong commitment to creativity and culture has led to Sacred Heart being awarded the Artsmark Gold Award, something we are exceptionally proud of!
Children take part in Topic sessions each week, following a skills based, creative scheme of work developed by our Topic leader, Miss Spillman. Our teachers use a 'progression in skills' document which helps them cater the scheme to individual classes and children. In addition to our weekly sessions, Topic provides us lots of opportunities for experiencing one of our 5 keys, 'curiosity and wonder', extending our learning beyond the curriculum requirements.
