Cross Curricular Links and Foundation Subjects

At Biscovey Nursery and Infants' Academy, we teach the foundation subjects (Geography, History, Art and DT etc) through a topic based, cross curricular approach.  We choose inspirational topics and link every strand of the curriculum to it. There are occasions when we need to teach stand alone lessons to make sure all areas of the curriculum are covered but generally we are able to make things fit within our long term plan.  In key stage 1, this may mean that some strands of the curriculum are not covered in year 1 but will be completed by the time children finish year 2.
