Science and Foundation Subjects
Science and Foundation Subjects: linking learning to make sense of the world for pupils.
Science is a core subject within the National Curriculum, alongside Maths and Literacy (and RE). The discrete teaching of Science is carefully structured so that it is contextually linked to other subjects. This is to make sure learning makes sense for pupils and that scientific enquiry and investigation has a real purpose. The Science drop down menu to left gives the detail of the Science curriculum for each year group, by every half term.
The Foundation subjects of The National Curriculum are: Computing, History, Geography, Art, Design and Technology, Music, PE and Foreign Language (French). The drop down menu to the left details the subject provision for each subject for each year group, by every half term. Each subject also links to the full Curriculum requirements
To organise learning for pupils, and to help them to make sense of the world they live in the majority of learning in Science and Foundation Subjects is taught in topics. At All Saints, the International Primary Curriculum (IPC) is utilised to structure such topics.
Science, Computing, History, Geography, Art, Design and Technology and Music are taught through the IPC topics. The IPC topics present learning for children in a vibrant and meaningful way, that help children to make links between subject areas.

Right from EYFS to Yr 5, French is taught as a discrete lesson by our French specialist Mrs Desjardin, and by Mrs Adams in Yrs 1 and 2.
Class teachers lead PE lessons, and this is supported by PE Coaches and our in house dance and gymnastic instructor Miss Robinson. Mrs Adams, Mrs Tansey and Miss Webb also supplement swimming teaching.
