The Foundation Subjects – Learning across the curriculum

We teach the subjects of Art, Design Technology, History and Geography through Cross Curricular Themes.  Children learn the skills linked to each subject e.g. in a history topic the children are taught about the use of sources and the chronological skills needed to understand time-lines. The children explore one topic each half term and the work is planned to link across the curriculum, making the learning relevant and meaningful.  The children take part in out of school visits to places of interest linked to their topic e.g. Year 3  studying children’s lives in Victorian Britain will visit the Ragged School Museum in Bethnal Green. We also book visitors to come into school to share their expertise and give the children a fun, real and memorable learning experience e.g. Building a Viking longboat, or an Iron Age round house
