Every year group learns through a series of topics, designed to build on subject knowledge and skills year on year. Most subjects are taught through these topics, with age-appropriate schemes of work for PSHE and PE. Maths and phonics are taught discreetly from the topic learning, using objectives from the National Curriculum and the Letters and Sounds guidance respectively.
Funding dedicated to physical activity
Maintained schools, academies, free schools and special schools receive a premium from the Government, designed to enhance the sports and healthy lifestyle provision for children in Years 1 to 6.
It is up to schools to decide how the money is spent, to provide sustainable improvements to their PE and general wellbeing provision, that will last after the Government initiative has ended.
The allocation to each school is £16,000 per academic year, plus £10 per pupil in Years 1 to 6.
