Foundation Subjects

Foundation subjects are linked to core subjects where appropriate through an English led teaching model. This means that high quality texts are at the centre of the curriuclum at Merlin Top. Once the books were chosen, long term planning ensured key skills from each foundation subject were then mapped to ensure coverage of the National Curriculum.
