Foundation Subjects/Topic

The foundation subjects, topic - History, Geography, Computing, Design and Technology, Art and Design, Music, Performing Arts and MFL (French) are integrated into our curriculum through half termly themes that aim to inspire and excite children with a range of rich and memorable learning experiences. 

Through the foundation subjects we aim to provide children with rich learning opportunities to develop practical skills, acquire knowledge and develop questioning to encourage curiosity through learning. Our practical, real purpose approach also develops engagement in cross-curricular writing. A high focus is placed on using quality enrichment and partnerships in school to support the teaching and learning of foundation subjects. A range of Educational Visits and Visitors enrich the children’s learning. 

Our children regularly use a range of technology such as ipads and laptops which develops key technology skills and promotes independent research. We are also proud to offer our pupils specialist teaching in Physical Education and Forest School by expert teachers in their field. We work alongside North Yorkshire Music Service who offer individual and group music lessons for children in school. Performing Arts is an integral part of the curriculum: we have our very own school choir and the children are also given opportunities to showcase at key events such as Young Voices.
