Foundation Subjects

All schools teach what are called Foundation Subjects.  These are all of the other subjects apart from RE, Science, English (including Reading and Phonics) and Mathematics.  Foundation subjects are taught for a much smaller percentage of the time and are often taught in thematic blocks.  At Rockcliffe most of the Foundation Subjects are taught in the afternoon but some are integrated into English or Maths lessons when appropriate (such as writing instructions on how to make an item or using scientific data to create mathematic graphs or models).

An overview for each of these subjects can found on their own dedicated pages.  This outlines what we expect to teach to children in 2022/2023.  We're updating these pages all of the time so check back regularly for updates.
