English and maths underpins everything we do and learn, through all of our courses we embed and prioritise their use in such ways as:

English

  • Written work is marked and feedback given. Spelling, grammar and punctuation are observed
  • Writing: purpose, audience and context are established
  • Reading: skimming and scanning skills. Get the gist or read in depth
  • Speaking and listening: through discussion techniques, presentation skills

Maths

  • Arts & Crafts: working out measurements/perspective/ratio, preparing an exhibition, emailing suppliers with costs, using isometric paper
  • Languages: preparing a trip to a foreign country (trip arrangements/costings/timetables), metric vs imperial
  • ICT: usage of spreadsheets, numerical commands and graphs
  • Dance & Fitness: timings, positions, angles, counting in music and dancing in time
