Core Subjects


At Furzeham Primary and Nursery School English has a high priority within the timetable. Teaching staff work hard to ensure all children develop excellent literacy skills as they are the key to children succeeding in so many other areas of the curriculum.
All children are taught English every day and experience a wide range of speaking and listening activities and opportunities for reading and writing to develop their communication skills.  Spelling and Grammar are taught explicitly at each age range. Children write for real audiences and purpose to inspire their writing.


At Furzeham Primary and Nursery School there is a daily mathematics lesson for all children. Lessons include whole class, group and individual work. Mental maths and problem solving are an important part of every lesson.  Learning through a clear progression of mental and written methods, children develop understanding and the skills to carry out calculations independently. Children are encouraged to discuss their methods of working, ideas and reasoning and share their expertise with others.

We ask parents to take an active part in their children’s mathematical development and encourage parents to support their children with activities undertaken at home.


We provide investigations that build upon children’s scientific knowledge, and develop their understanding of how science shapes and influences life. We promote the development of skills, giving all children the opportunity to tackle everyday problems with confidence.  Our science lessons are practical and hands on and we aim to make science an enjoyable part of the curriculum.
