Foundation Subjects

Foundation subjectsThe curriculum at Wainwright Primary Academy is designed to give pupils the opportunity to secure the core skills in speaking, reading, writing and Maths. The Foundation subjects, such as History and Geography are used to provide exciting opportunities for the children to gain knowledge and to develop and apply their core Maths and English skills.

Each year group designs their long term plan according to half termly topics. We have four whole school topics and two which are year group specific (linked to the National Curriculum requirements for the year group). For example; Year 3 have a topic on the Romans and Year 5 study the Vikings.

All topic work based around the Foundation subjects is linked to the work the children are doing in English and is used to develop opportunities for speaking, reading, writing.

The teaching of Computing skills is delivered through the Maths and Science curriculum.
