RE, English and Mathematics are taught at set times during the week in Key Stage 1. 

Science and Foundation Subjects are taught through CLIP, 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 CLIP topic being taught each half term.
