RE, English and Mathematics are taught discreetly in Key Stage 1. This means that we have set times for dedicated lessons for these subjects.
Science and Foundation Subjects are taught through IPC, and our topics change every half term.
So that the children in EYFS and KS1 receive a well balanced, creative curriculum, teachers make sure that Maths, English and RE lessons are closely linked to the IPC topic being taught each half term.
