Foundation Subjects

Our foundation subject curriculum has been carefully mapped out to provide children with learning opportunities that are sequential, progressive and cumulative and contribute to our children accessing a curriculum that is rich and balanced in skills and knowledge teaching and provides opportunities to revisit key learning concepts and reactivate prior knowledge; transferring their skills and knowledge further into their long term memory to be able to access it fluently.

Each foundation subject has been shared below with the subject intent, coverage and progressions. Additionally, we have created a set of disciplinary skills to support our children with their understanding and knowledge of the skills they are learning in a subject. These are also detailed below.

Art and Design 

To support our learning in Art and Design we use Curriculum Maestro and the progression of knowledge and skills that children need to be successful. Our children love art and the carefully chosen units and skills taught enable the children to develop their skills.
