Our foundation subjects focus on subject disciplines to ensure that coverage and progression are not lost within the thematic approach. Each subject is mapped out individually and seizes every opportunity to address disadvantage and promote equality, filling in gaps from individual and groups of pupil’s backgrounds, including cultural capital. The subjects demonstrate clear progression. Lessons encourage children to revisit, recall and apply previously learned skills and knowledge to different contexts. Sequences of lessons are carefully considered to build on components of knowledge that lead to conceptual understanding.
During our school closure, our teachers created pre-recorded lessons to support the children whilst they were learning at home. Here are some examples of our foundation subject lessons:
