Please find below the overarching theme titles for the English and Foundation Subject Curriculum at The Alderton Junior School.


The National Curriculum is split in to two main areas, Core subjects and Foundation subjects. The Core subjects include English (Reading, Writing and Speaking and Listening), Mathematics, Computing and Science. The Foundation subjects include: History, Geography, Physical Education, Art, Design and Technology, Religious Education and Personal, Social, Health and Citizenship Education (PSHCE), Modern Foreign Languages (Spanish) and Music. 


We aim to make learning as meaningful, memorable and purposeful as possible through linking learning creatively. We teach English under the same themes of the Foundation subjects, to help pupils develop vocabulary and writing skills that support them to apply their learning from the wider foundation curriculum.


Please see our Curriculum Intent and a more detailed explanation of our Curriculum, as well as a Parent Guide to what is taught in the Primary National Curriculum, on the previous page or by clicking Curriculum under the Key Information drop down menu on the Home Page.
